To the Little Boy with the Cystic Hygroma

This is your heart beat.

A slow steady rhythm marked by flickering white light.

This is the pulse of life.

An erratic fast then slow but pushing on relentlessly.

In the rush of everything, everyone, and everywhere I need to be,

I listen for the thumping in your chest

That sets my steps

And Moves me on despite the setbacks and lacking self-confidence.

I listen for the next beat with bated breath.

Keep beating though the journey is long.

Keep beating though the slog is hard.

Keep beating to guide me where I can hold you in my arms

and become the one who leads you beyond.

Gospel of Eve (WIP): Quote of the Day

Adam looked back at me with raised eyebrows. “God placed it here,” he said. “But why?” I pressed. “Why would He place something in the Garden that could hurt us?” Adam did not respond. He seemed unable to, though his jaw moved as if he was considering what he might say. Too late, he shook his head.
