Looking

         Jesus said to them, “What are you looking for?”
                  —John 1.38

Sometimes we forget
what we’re looking for.
Sometimes we forget
we’re looking.

Every act, a bold venture
or a mindless chore,
is seeking something,
expecting something. What?

What are you hoping for?
What do you need?
Are you looking
in the right place?

What do you want?
         What do you want more than that?
                  And even more than that?
Seek that and let the rest go.       

  
Breath prayer:
                           
Seeking … you
