the surrender will be silent

the lion
will lie down
with the lamb*

all that gnaws
stalks
preys
consumes

will give up

the surrender
will be silent

no fanfare:

it is the moment
when
~self-aware~
we come to ourselves

uncompromised
unravaged
pristine

a holy city—
light inside
and out
an undisputable joy
about us

joni overton-jung

*Isaiah 11
