From the briny depths

of jagged disrepair

my heart journeys


to the healing of his voice


He says my name as if

no other has flown

through those lips,

though I know better


His eyes find me

across a crowded room

I’m looking into

the nest of my soul

and the home of my heart


Lifted by his love

I rise from the deep

to the heavens

caught up in levitation

to gather an

answered prayer

from the hand of God
