Holy One,
From the depths,
and the echoes of all that is within me,
I gather the bits, the chunks, the gaps and the ether
of who I am and release it to our embrace and embodiment.
Receive my longing and hunger, O God.
See my face, kiss my tears,
wrap the tendrils of my mystery around your being with love.

Giving One,
Open my ears, my eyes,
my heart, my being
to the rhythm of your voice
and the beat of your desire
that I may hear your word
drink in your pleasure,
dance to the song of your delight.

Join me to your light,
enflesh the fullness of my being with your love,
infuse my soul with joy,
that I may radiate all that Is.
