*Sacred Zoom*

Will you virtually hold my hand?

Will you sit beside me

in a sacred zoom gathering

as i work through

awkward sound problems

to ensure two humans

in South America

can be properly and fully heard?

Can you join

your prayer

with mine

while i read a

missed chat comment

from a mother

bedside

her son

In the intensive care unit,

praying for his organs

to revitalize

—for his life to be saved?

Will you walk beside me

Into a future unknown

—unknowable—

where we

feel

—fully and safely—

the sacred grief

our present culture denies?

Can you affirm

my longing

for love and kindness

to reign?

Will you love

more

deeply

devotedly

often unreciprocated

for Love’s sake?

Can you

find

make

believe

and stoke

connective courage

—Heartrage—

to light up tomorrow?

Will you?

Can you?

I will

if you will.

Let’s both

go first

together.
