Waiting worship

Sea Oat, from Glen's Pic's photostream on flickralpha and omega
are not
yet completion

because
there is a
huge
gap
in the middle.

the life which spills
from the wound
does not satisfy
but increases
our hunger.

therefore
we are not ready
to eat
at that table.

instead
we want to
dance.

dancing hungry
is
sometimes
better than
eating
another man’s
bread.

if we
sat in the trees
and waited
perhaps
manna would fall.

even so
it would taste
stale
and dissolve into
rust
on our tongues.

so
we go on
dancing.

not joining
the table

even though
we
dearly love
the
host.
