Poem: "An Unclenched Moment?" by Laurie Ann Kraus
An Unclenched Moment?
Gentle me, Holy One, Into an unclenched moment, a deep breath, a letting go of heavy experiences, of shriveling anxieties, of dead certainties, that, softened by the silence, surrounded by the light, and open to the mystery, I may be found by wholeness, upheld by the unfathomable, entranced by the simple, and filled with the joy That is You .
