Listen, watch and wait

Enlightenment approaches --
a hint of dawn beyond the dark hills --
but still it's just too dark to see
the ground on which I stand,
the steps that I could take
to draw me into the light.
Be still, then, and know
the sun will rise
without my walking toward it:
listen, watch, and wait:
Sink to your knees,
and feel the warmth
stealing into your bones.
