Prayer of the Mystic

jordan river from yourguidetoisrael

River Promise

 

Forgive yourself

For you are the river that takes the  bitter route

And finds the ocean swell around you like shoulders

Broadening and holding the most precious child.

 

Oh river, take me slowly at first

So that I do not get lost in tears of my own abiding

Show me how to wave my arms around rocks and groves

Silver and gold my underlings

Patterns softening and shaping the water

As old batteries are brushed aside

Promises of new year tides

 

Take me to the one promise I never told

Perfect and flowing 

Ever going

Into the mystic of God’s perfect Arms

Enfold.

 

 

The Miracle is You
