Spirit

i run this race

creepingly slow some days

or

like this morning

with feet as steely as will

pounding these pavements

begging the humid stillness

to give up a breeze

exhorting divinity

til with cool breath

steady as mine is ragged

the sweaty rivulets 

run cold

and i sing 

between gasps

gratitude for a heart 

full

of You
