House

                 In my Mother’s house there are many dwelling places.
                 
—John 14.2

May your many-mansioned heart
be mine, Beloved,
with room for all,
each belonging,
each wondrous in their own abundant ways,
each one kin, beloved, and a gift.
May the house of my heart
be blessed with the noise
of many languages of prayer,
and the prayer of many kinds of silence.
