Waiting says ‘here I am with empty, open hands
watching for your wonders.’
Listening, looking, living
like a cup ready to be filled to overflowing.
Going, getting, grasping
says ‘give me this now‘,
keeps my hands occupied with
not-life, missing completely
leaving me full of myself–
dull and lifeless as
I’m choosing empty on purpose
to stand and receive your God good gifts.
You always amaze——
