Grace & Faith

As swimmers dare
to lie face to the sky
and water bears them,
as hawks rest upon air
and air sustains them,
so would I learn to attain
freefall, and float
into Creator Spirit's deep embrace,
knowing no effort earns
that all-surrounding grace.

--Denise Levertov, excerpted from "Life Prayers" by Elizabeth Roberts & Elias Amidon
