by Elizabeth Reninger

Original Language English

Go out after midnight
with the sky trembling
in snowy light --
each star holding its filament
of desire. Merge

your mind with the spiraling
galaxies -- with a movement so
large only Your
heart can encompass it.

Drop your prayer into the ear
of God. Write a poem to help
her hear it.

Notice the moon grow
more distant and
diffuse -- Reappear
as your Beloved

looking out through eyes
vast as a Winter
