If you say so

           Simon answered, “Master,
         we have worked all night long but have caught nothing.
         Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.”
                           —Luke 5.5



So much I already know,
but Teacher, you bid me begin again.

I want progress and productivity,
but Beloved, you bid me kneel again.

I treasure my choosing,
but my Guide and my Wisdom, you bid me obey.

For all my failure,
Blessed One, you tell me the fruit is unseen.


Sometimes going through the motions
of love
produces love.
