Elevate me, O God, into what is highest within me.
Bring me to the sky where loose clouds loosen more
and show me what I cannot touch with my skin.
Loosen me so I break open like the sky above a thirsty earth.
Elevate me. O God, loosely, like clouds in their skin.
Touch what I cannot thirst after on this earth. Loosen me
until I cannot break and show me what is highest in me,
bringing within what is more, what breaks ceaselessly open.
Elevate me, O God, to the loosened earth where sky is a show
of what I cannot touch and clouds break open against my skin.
Break me open with thirst. Like the sky above the earth,
bring me what is highest, loose and within.
Elevate me, O God, within, where loose clouds show me
how I break open like a thirsty earth. Into what is highest
in me, bring your touch. Loosen me more, your cloud, this
skin. What is highest, open within this earth.
