Is it enough?

Face to face we sit-

The silence, like a stone wall, separating us.

It is not enough

to sit in proximity if we have no trust.

Give us hearts of flesh to grieve our hostility:  then grant us laughter

and let us reach.  Even if we do not see eye to eye clearly.

dare us open up our hands

be hospitable:  bare us soul to soul.
