vigil

“In this uncontainable night, be the mystery at the crossroads of your senses, the meaning discovered there. And if the world has ceased to hear you, say to the silent earth: I flow. To the rushing water, speak: I am”
~
Rainier Maria Rilke

Vigil
Silently, spilling emotions
Held in check, hands steadfastly
Worry beading for safe passage
palms loosely lying half shell
Ready to gently cup the bird
Leaving its cage, finally
Love’s strong ties
Never wholly untie
I still see that gentle face
Brows furrowed awaiting
Our safe return and a rush
Of tenderness floods my being
