POEM: Dwelling Amulet (love sonnet to light & psalm 27)

In the beginning
I was given everything
And what did I do
With myself

and your treasures?
Only one thing I ask
Animates my coming and going
Inside your house

In the beginning,
Given inner speech
Enfold us within your
sanctuary of hands

Inside the tent of every wish
Encamped, beloved
