Stir

Close,
your
eyes
And in the space of time
and distance
between your eyelashes
being erect
and then
swooping down
to touch
your lower eyelid,
connect
stretch the arms of your mind
gliding up
to things above
and then breathe.

A thousand years
is still like a
single
day.

if you let your heart
be
stirred

then spoon out music
from your lips
even if it’s completely
inaudible

if you let your heart be stirred
so it’s not still
but it’s moved, and shaken
and completely wrapped up,
taken and involved in,
enveloped and surrounded,
covered and deeply embraced
in the Savior.

if you let your heart be stirred
so it’s not disparate
it all becomes
one.

if you let your heart be stirred
so it’s a little more awake
and ready to hear voices
still and small

stirred
to make room,
stirred
to say welcome,
come stay,
Hosanna
dear Savior.
