A touch of holy

 

The words of forgiveness and suffering

were not easy to listen to,

what with images of dancing and touch

coming so closely with the heat

of the rising sun.

 

Learning to welcome worldly torment

hoping for otherworldly release

because I am alive and utterly human;

the form we have is not ours to keep.
