Thanks, Christine, for sharing your new favorite poem. I find it fitting for this Valentine’s season.
Gamble everything for love
If you’re a true human being
If not, leave this gathering
Half-heartedness doesn’t reach into majesty.
You set out to find God,
but then you keep stopping for long periods
at meanspirited roadhouses.
Don’t wait any longer.
Dive in the ocean,
leave and let the sea be you.
Silent, absent, walking an empty road, all praise.
