To make my way to the Source, I pray, and
to understand how it carves through the rock
and reshapes the earth along its holy path;
I pray to meet the One who loves the path
— its movement more than its destination —
and to learn the patience of unknown ends;
To greet Perseverance and her sister Joy,
I pray, and to splash and wade with them
in the beautiful path that yields to no one.
Let me go upstream, I pray, forever upstream.
on Daniel 12:5-13
