Graceful Tension

Anyone who said it easy
to forgive another
by another to be forgiven,
did not grasp
or let go,
the tension of the space
the hold of such grace.

And there you are, standing
quietly, openly, and lovingly
in that graceful tension.

To stand, effortless you know
it certainly is not
there in presence, often taut,
but there you are
by choice,
for us holding gratitude and generosity, the two
because first, they both were given to you.

But steadfast remain, those we need
like you, powerful with love
empowering us in impartiality.

Your desire encouraging, your intent inspiring
leading us simply
your Trueness, and mine, an equalizer,
forgiveness a relief
to suffering,
and together then, each paradox we live,
and presently, in presence, to each other we give.

–J. Brunson
