as I am – a poem by k. rowan jordan-abrams

as I am

in-between the night and the dawn
there is a moment,

in and of itself, this too —

blessed are you, gxd —

the words exist
in-between
before they even pass my lips.

I am here,
and I am nowhere,

but these hills
glow with flowers
and echo and resound
with birdsong,
all of creation —

I can feel gxd
in the clear blue sky

who has made me
as I am.
