Maybe I don’t have to be
roasted on a spit.
Maybe I don’t have to kneel all day
in a shaft of light.
I am walking down a gravel road.
I glimpse the mountains in the distance.
A woodpecker drums
in the top of a tree.
I have surrendered myself to you, Lord.
You have given me your grace
and your love.
You have given me this day.
You have given me my life.
I ask for nothing more.
