From Beat to Beat

From beat to beat, my

heart waits upon

You.  This

suspension, this

being between, this

being on the way is

your way, and so mine too:

both

a fall and

a firm eye fixed afar,

both

breathlessness and

Sanctus.

Each beat

a prayer,

a vow,

a homily,

a silence.

    I very much like the way you’ve used the beat of the words to emphasize the meaning of the words. Nicely done!

    I, too, really appreciate how the line breaks and word choices mirror the beating of a heart. You’ve included us in your worship experience. Lovely.

  5. A breathless Sanctus. Holy indeed.
