Heart-in-Waiting

Jesus walked through whispering wood
I am pale blossom, I am blood berry
I am rough bark, I am sharp thorn
This is the place where you will be born

Jesus went down to the skirt of the sea
I am long reach, I am fierce comber
I am keen saltspray, I am spring tide
He pushed the cup of the sea aside

And heard the sky with breathed and blew
I am the firmament, I am shape changer
I cradle and carry and kiss and roar
I am infinite roof and floor

All day he walked, he walked all night,
The Jesus came to the heart at dawn
Here and Now said the Heart in Waiting
This is the place where you must be born
