Turn, and Be Saved

Sometimes, all it takes
is the slight movement of your eye,
a tilt of your head, your heart, to admit
a new angle, to see the way out, the way through
that was always there, but just out of sight, like God is. 

This can happen in the smallest pauses, like the rest
between inhale and exhale, or the moment just before
the words you will always regret find their way out
of your mouth.  This is the salvation we’ve been waiting for,
the one thing that's always given, if only we would turn and
receive.

  1. Reminds me of the third force Cynthia Bourgeault talks about: hidden in plain sight.
