Writing My Faith

Writing my faith,
 Trying to find my voice,
 Requires:
 

 Grit
 Determination 
 The hide of a rhino;
 

 balanced with the fine-tuning 
 of a solo violinist on their first gig.
 

 

 It calls for:
 Confidence
 Earthiness 
 The gift of the gab;
 

 

 Alongside the wisdom of a hermit (crab?)
 with a total allergy to:
 jargon, snazzy mission statements
 and twee three-letter acronyms.
 

 

 Above  all -  it demands:
 Space
 Time 
 Stickability;
 

 

 

 With an adventurous, loving spirit,  poised - 
 ready to step out,
  dancing,
 into the whirlwind of the Eternal  Now.
