to rest upon the air

As swimmers dare
to lie face to the sky
and water bears them,
as hawks rest upon air
and air sustains them
so would I learn to attain
freefall, and float
into Creator Spirit's deep embrace,
knowing no effort earns
that all-surrounding grace.
(The Avowal, Denise Levertov)
I want to be like this - trusting and free and resting in the all-surrounding grace.
