Before he was born, Jesus
was the silence of your listening.
The stillness between your breaths
put on a garment.
To see the face of the savior,
look deep into your body.
Underestimating your glory
is the first and only sin.
Now drink up the rest of this day:
bask in yourself
and squander the kingdom!
A fountain of something like starlight
will rise up your spine,
spill over and shower the world
with burning seeds of wonder,
gold as the stuff in Mary's womb!
