I will lie here at the crossroads till dawn
where She will find me in Her time.
Here I will stay between my world and Hers
until the morning light brings me back.
I stand at the threshold, the space betwixt,
where I am and am not, yet She knows me.
Here in the sacred noplace I am safe
from all that would harm me, under Her care.
I am drawn to the crossroads where the dead cannot rise;
it calls me in whispers that fascinate my mind,
taking me from this world near to the next,
yet not close enough to remain neither here nor there,
not above, not below.
I am who I am when I dance in Her garden.

Psalm # 23
