Origami Prayer

Open me outwards;
Too long I’ve wandered
Inside inward caverns
In search of the words
For textures and fissures
And tensions inside.
 
Open me upwards;
Let Your sun fill me.
Too long I’ve enclosed
Myself in my Self,
Wounding and licking
The wounds of the dark.
 
Open me up to the
Surge of recharging
Grace like a spark-shower,
Then outwards open
Me, Origami-like,
To live and to love,
 
In arms, ever-holding,
Your arms, ever-outstretched,
Head raised to heaven,
Heart turned to Outside,
Love drawing, holding me:
Open me up.
