my heart has gone
become everything
searching for You

it is the ground
and yearning for You
rises off it
like mist
on a quiet winter morning
soaked up
by all the world
soaked up by me

is a constant ache
sucked in
with the breath

the out breath:
a silent calling-out
a plea

Your Name
uttered endlessly
by every atom,
steeped in longing

and in the stillness
between breaths
the whole world listens:
for Your answer
