i sat in stillness
a glimpse is all i need
the air thick with silence
kept watch with me

could it be coaxed out of hidiing?

i felt the drop
leaving a trail
down my back
it wasn’t hot
yet the perspiration
like precipitation
could not be stopped

how long must i wait?

elusive it is
always has been
i hear the sound
i feel the shadow
rarely seeing its face
barely knowing its shape

how does it remain such a mystery?

looking east
when it runs west
i struggle to comprehend
how i hide myself
my true self
from even me

who can save me from this body of death?

Thanks be to God 
in Christ Jesus 
our Lord
