stretch up

All this hurrying soon will be over. 
Only when we tarry do we touch the holy.
Rainer Maria Rilke

my heart aches
to slow
down
to stretch
up
to touch Him
and allow myself
to be touched

Being a "Rocky" person...and a "treer"... you just grabbed me. Loved this. Thanks much, Karin.

I love the candid simplicity of this poem. You really stripped it down to its heart. Great job.
