Richard Wehrman - Towards each other

 For years
I thought God
would show up
in a flash and dazzle -
decking me out
in gold and silks,
gifting me with palace and jewels,
where I would live out
a kingly life of ease.
But these days,
though God looms large
on my horizon -
it is often misty and hard to see.
Our movement
towards each other
comes tightly measured -
in single steps,
in difficult and long lived days.
And our final greeting
may be less
a joyous celebration
full of gold and glitter -
than each,
falling exhausted,
into the others

from Light was Everywhere
