they were gathered together in the upper room
with some women, including Mary,
they were praying, waiting, as you had told them.
Our upper room this evening is our hearts,
they too are filled with expectation
that our words cannot capture,
a longing that you yourself never cease to explore.
Perhaps God created us this way, beings of lack?
So that we can experience everything
that it is not this, nor that,
in every place, that it is neither here nor there.
So that we may tirelessly seek you,
you who made us for you.
So with them, we too stand in the upper room,
waiting for what you have promised us,
the Breath of Life, of Life in abundance.
