Deserted place

In the morning, while it was still very dark,
he got up and went out to a deserted place,
and there he prayed. 
And Simon and his companions hunted for him. 
—Mark 1.35-36

Go there.
Place of quiet darkness.

Sacred hiddenness.
Where you will be unfound.

Solely soul.
Simply flesh.

Be wide open as the deserted sky
Disappear in the blackness.

Let your self be there.
There, let your self be.

Let your self be found
by the One

waiting for you
to come

into the silence,
emptiness,

darkness
of God.
