An Invitation

Let them praise his name with dancing 
  and make music to him with timbrel and harp.
                                                Psalm 149:3

Come, whoever you are,
no matter the boulders of doubt
or dark devastation of faith;
come, with the breathless vacancies 
in your heart
from what has torn
away in the desolate
canyons of loss.

Come, whoever you are
and open 
to His ecstatic love
sustaining all;
come and join
this cosmic dance
of love
in these vanishing halls of time:

then in our falling
we are caught,
in our lost wanderings
we are found,
in our storm-raked ships
we become the shore,
and in dying
 we rise again.
