dissolve the shackle

dissolve the shackle

Lay a little heat on your spiritual life
—Father Ron Rolheister

you aware when
when you see through
through this earthly life
to something deeper—
it’s on you
to make the turn
beyond the bustle
and the rumpus
to where it’s still
—rest there

explore the land
not with your feet
probe knowing instead
be thorough
lay a little heat
use intention
open your eyes
to the quarter-inch hail
pelting outside—
that, too
