Prayer to Nuit

You come in silence, Nuit,
when space is left open for your infinite emptiness.
And so it is that speech, and deeds, and any searching won't find you.
Only waiting.
I sit here and wait with openness, with longing but no expectation.
Though all else is empty, the longing remains.
I hope you will not begrudge me that, and will still bring me to you.
