POEM: Tasting Your Hidden Presence

Share

By Christi Ortiz

What if I listened
Deeper
and
Longer
What would I hear?
How would I change?
What if what I know to be prayer
is not prayer at all
but just inner static?
What if I knew true stillness
and tasted your Presence?
Surely I would never be the same.
I would come here often
to be with You
and
Drink.
