The edge of sight

The impatience of a hunter, keen,intent
Will miss small movements at the edge of sight
Will miss the sacred spirit’s new descent

Relaxing when in danger,insolent,
Will throw a wider beam of golden light
Curb impatience, excess of  intent

Slowness  is a sign we are present
That’s enough for heart to speak to heart
We see the holy spirit’s new descent

  Can we   from  our eagerness dissent
Lean back, let the other play their part
Curb impatience, excess of  intent?

For my narrow vision,I repent
How I’ve missed  the whole with graphs and charts
Now I see the holy spirit’s spent

Scanning with a wider gaze unvites
Calmer ways of living with less spite,
The impatience of a hunter, keen,intent
Will miss  the gold of spirit’s new descent
