August’s Reality

Relapsed 
Into 
A reality 
Not yet known 
And 
Not yet seen 
Yet, 
Fatigued with familiarity 

Rendered 
Into 
Dependency 
Upon 
Community 
And the 
Daily bread 
Set out before me 

Led to 
        A deep 
	Awareness
        Of my limits 
        And 
        Need 

        Released expectations 
        Upon 
        My body 
        And 
        My mind 

        A shaking with grief 
        And 
        A dancing with God’s hand of strength upon me 


                     Led to 
	                       The hearing of 
	                       Healing laughter 
	                       Surrounding me 

	                       The humbling 
	                       Gift of 
	                       Community carrying 

	                       The hope of 
	                       What awaits 
	                       Beyond me 
	                       And this place 
	                       Sustaining me 

Relapsed 
Into 
A reality 
Not yet fully known
And 
Not yet fully seen


Grace upon grace 
Meeting you 
In your need.
