sacred space


sacred space

     a place of comfort

            the quiet back hall stairway 

        where a friend and i sat together

                  unready to reenter the world

     we had witnessed death and resurrection

               exhausted and fragile 

                         we sat in our humbled humanity

                                            each heartbeat thankful for grace

                                                      and our loving, redemptive, healing God

                               we held onto precious gifts 

                                                     friendship, faith and time

                                                           the provision, food for our souls

                                                                 sacred space
