Your Monday Blessing: Once Again I Recommit to my Surrender

Your Monday Blessing: Once Again I Recommit to my Surrender

Once again I recommit to my surrender
to love. They point their little guns at us,
there isn’t much time. Raise the mast heavenward,
unfurl the rainbow flag. I stand beneath it,
the living covenant. The flesh that defies
the letter. I claim myself as one of the fragile things,
on which eternity is born. They would dictate the terms
of our whisperings, but I answer you, my love,
that our surrender is final, is total, it begins and ends
at the river of our longings. Tell them our surrender is complete.
