I Fall

I Fall

I came to the desert a postulant, a supplicant, to the sun

laid bare-belly to the scorched-desert sand, a ritual begun

Stripped and whipped, I begin to understand

Blood and time had made this land

But Something else lingers here…

A gentle knowing grace, an ever-familiar face

And it’s into Her pain-filled embrace

I fall…

Ever-determined to heed Her call
