Contemplative Life (The Pearl)

Grains of sand

Intruding

Irritating sensibilities of perfection

Ambitions of innocence

Hopes of intimacy

Desired community

Belonging

Home

Christ

Holding a suffering space

Bridging echoed dissonance

Covering grace

Eternity in time

Time in eternity

Making us His place

Converting grains of sand

Gently forming

Practice presence

Silence

Hour by hour

Layers hidden

The pearl emerges

Precious delight

Shalom so bright

Joy following the darkest of the night
