The Sacred Now

The supreme gift
God Himself formed
in a moment
and I miss it
again and again
my shoes pinching my toes
as I run faster and
faster looking for what
I already have.

I need to throw off my shoes
feel my toes sink
into the sacred earth
shake dew drops from
feet washed in grass
wet with morn.

Here is the only place
I can love God
here, now
the sacred place
where God patiently
waits for me
to stop chasing my tail
to sin in quiet expectation
to be in the holy now.
