Hanging on, attached desire
devotion as on a chain, pendant
of inclination, symbol of liking
reminder of hope, art object, vow:
“not my will but thine be done”
humble penchant of refinement
home of faith, polished in relief
morning worship, bent in grace
doubled, before a chair, altar
in my sacred place, closet of belief
to pierce the darkness, renew
the covenant, holding on to light
sextant of prayer, measuring
my distance, to the stars of night.
