Visited by Awe

Our sleep, by wonder’s joy, is cracked.
We wake from apathy.
Our souls surprised find what they lacked
One moment sets us free.

With shortened breath and deepened sigh
Time stands as still as stone.
In silence past and future lie
This moment stands alone.

To will it does not make it so,
We cannot force, form awe.
It falls from heav’n to us below
Unbidden, without flaw.

Yet when it falls, it is not missed
We halt mid-step, mid-air.
Our weary hearts by awe are kissed
Life beats in accents fair.

When years unheeded, seem to turn
As spinning spokes on wheels,
In bated hope await and yearn,
Awe comes, the soul will heal.
