“Among the Rocks”

“…with honey from the rock

I would satisfy you.”

Psalm 81:16

††††††††††††

I looked for you among the rocks today
~
Hoping to find something valuable
something hidden underneath
an object to place in my pocket
feel its weight and know
“This, this came from God.”

~
I created a path in stone
turned them all over
rhythmic succession
relentless pursuit

~
I held them in my hands
weighed their worth
Finding none, I asked out loud

“Where? Where is it found?
This thing I am looking for.
Called towards.
Considering.”

~
Suddenly, yet slowly still
a response
an impression
a footprint
an insight

“See, the value
is in the conversation.
The stones themselves.
In the seeking
not just the found.”

~
Now they were all precious
moments to be treasured
taken home
talked about

~
I found you among the rocks today
