Thirsting for Divine Connection

No one leads this dog to water;
no one needs to make him drink:
he does it when he's thirsty,
for he listens to his body.
When will we learn
to pay attention to our longings,
to honor our hungers
and assuage our true thirsts?
When will we --
seeing our reflection hovering there,
in that for which we thirst --
begin to comprehend
that that face is not our own
but belongs to God;
that what we long for
is the Divine Connection?
