Contemplative Prayer, Keating

 

Mud

 

washer machines, vacuum cleaners, cars in traffic

driving to, driving from, frantic

anxiety, tasks, no sleep

cooking, worrying, the news

 

footsteps sticking, swishing, squishing

eww, gross, slime between toes

flying up legs, splattering

masking, treacherous ground

 

settling, calming, wreckage falling

separating earth, separating water

debris from life, ashes born again

silently, forming, rainbow of light

 

swaying, dancing, twirling with joy

embraced, kingdom come

lover and beloved,

ecstasy.
