Hoping for Breath: Amidah Gift June 19, 2020

I pray for the holding open

of the rock at the edge of hope.

I pray for the light never to go out.

I pray for my eyes never to close.

I pray for my love always to breathe

in and out

echoing the expanse of the cosmos

in and out

forward and back

into my arms and back again

as we dance

our steps of exploration.

For exploration can only be

in the leaving.

And so as I travel beyond myself

and across the boundaries

I have never imagined

I pray the light into holding

I pray my love always open

I pray my steps always landing

where I can breathe.
