Song of Songs 2:8-13

Year B - Pentecost +14 or Energy to Witness 14
August 30, 2015

Must I wait, must I follow?
Won't you say "Come with me?"

O we want to be invited
   to what we know all too well

A glance, a word, a gesture
   we might respond to

And in that response
   know we are The Initiator

It is our pile of dust
   that attracted a creator

From our wallflower position
   we see strings pulled

Our empty silence the strongest pull
   our excuse for failure stronger still

We wait, we reposition, we make available
    yet no champion bursts our bounds

Come, my love, sit awhile
   reveal my beauty
