Since creation

Whatever is most precious to you –

that wildly beating heart

in the alcoves of your soul –

bring it to me,

lay it before me,

and let’s gaze on it together.

Why do you tremble,

as if I would uncreate

what is already complete?

No, my child:

I have longed for you since creation.

    I love those first six lines, Ingrid, especially the invitation to: “bring it to me, lay it before me, and let’s gaze on it together.” There lies honesty and vulnerability and true relationship and growth.
