Hold that word

Another poem from my friend Christopher Payne:


Hold that word

That almost escaped,

Pursue the echo.


Hold that place

Where words have failed

On the tip of your tongue.


Hold that thought

Of almost inspiration.

Where emptiness intrudes.


Hold that poem

At the moment of waking,

Before the white-wash of day.


Hold that prayer

Suspended over the world,

And feel Him speak.
