Prayer

Without sight and sound
         here I am
in silence and stillness
my being lost and found.

Not in the frenzied search for you
nor for my own rebirth,
simply holding myself in you,
here, at the centre of cosmos and me,
constant point of the changing earth.

without sound and sight,
         here I stand
‘thou’ of a thousand names,
darkness to me and light.
