Intimate Momentum




If you follow my Instagram account you saw that I wrote a poem early this morning (technically yesterday morning now that I look at the clock). Here it is…as promised.

Titled: Intimate Momentum


Here I am, Lord.  Here I am.

I will not complain,

for you are near.


You are not far, not far at all,

and you hear my breaths,

my every breath, as one leaning in

intently listening.


As one closer than my very breaths,

and breathing life-

As one hearing the thumping

of my heart, not distant, closer still


more than infinitely near

as if this present time is the same

as forever without gap, without lapse,

without distance, now…


You are now, encompassing  always

which is to say- yesterday, today,

and  tomorrow. Unchanging,

the same. Present.


And I am forever with you, for you

are ever present in me.

And we go on, forever.
