just a piece of a piece…..


a mustard seed?
just the
morsel of a mustard
touch of a cloak
or the breeze from your
crowded passing.
to surrender and finally
give it up to your judgement,
surrender to what you want
the journey
and hope, still knowing –
the morsel, that i may
hold it long enough
to plant it somewhere fertile.
all these choices,
that i’m not asking too late
that you hear me and that
the confidence
i feel is true,
that it becomes stronger than
the seed, taller than its
growing tree,
that the cloak is more than  a passing
-is it, it is, i believe so,
while my nerves are un nerving-
but my confidence is unyielding
my faith is thy will
that your will, is my mustard seed
– and that this trust
surpasses the beautiful risk
