Rhythm
A Contemplative Provocation

In the secret privacy of mind and heart,
where I fear God who knows what’s there,
my Creator inserts himself between
yesterday’s fight with tomorrow’s life.
There with rhythmic grace
He divides light from darkness
for neither rigidity nor chaos does God desire.
His delight for me is to dance with Him,
Christ’s unfolding choreography,
in my most secret place.
