By Your Invitation 
I sit and wait
Releasing thoughts
That agitate
To be whisked away
On wild late
November winds

Accompanied by
One dancing flame
And the sweetness of
Your Dearest Name
I rest here till
Your Wisdom
Reclaims me once again

From the chaos and confusion
And the collective cruel delusion
That we can be saved by
Anything less than
Unmitigated Love

O Lady of Advent
Find me! Grace me
And remind me
That for today
To sit and wait
With Hope
Is work enough.
