stops&steps
   of the mind
fold back
     upon itself
extraneous
    yet within
reverberations
    transcend language
into
   apparent contradictory
       perspectives
otherness
   a narrative
   of a process
which
   anchors meaning

moving
   back&forth
we each
    must find our way
as bafflement
becomes understanding

then venture
a leap
    in times of tension
something
is there
    a way to godliness
as we
    face to face
come
   to Thee

memories
in a sense
     of imagery
from
   a floating vision
in a search
   for meaning
     of the fallen
                 state

a stasis
from salvation
              found
measuring meaning
identifying
   consequences
breathless
    to discuss
&
   explain
         where selfless
love reigns
affirmed
in a communal walk
