"The Avowal" from Denise Levertove's Oblique Prayers

 As swimmers dare
to lie face to the sky
and water bears them,
as hawks rest upon air
and air sustains them,
so would I learn to attain
freefall, and float
into Creator Spirit’s deep embrace,
knowing no effort earns
that all-surrounding grace.

My good friend Irene pointed the way to this poem. I love the image of freefalling into the Creator's deep embrace. I believe I have experienced that. It is wonderful and affirming. Have you?
