Waiting on a Miracle

Will wine ever flow despite all the vinegar in my veins?
I know it shall arrive, the balm, whatever its welcoming face,
sure as all anointing oils, sure as all the saints who return to my door.

I am blessed that this old, bold hope endures. With hope, even now is joy.

So it is I sense the imminent cure, and I shall wait this way, even now,
this stay as splendor, yes even now, here near as all heaven rises
from a trace of swirling lavender somewhere within this skin of alabaster.
