Slow Passage of Time

An ocean of sky
presses upon
this vast desert.

Surrounded by
a severe landscape,
I try to
adjust the meaning
of these lines.

Adapt to the slow

passage of time,
observe the patient
growth of cactus;
and the steady
growth of my faith.

Accept the slow
gift of time
being offered
as an invitation
to your creation.

Your long, 

slow silence
within my soul.
