In the absence

I have a yearning for a community, but nothing to fill it.
There is an abundance of churches in this land,
but they are like the mirage in the desert.
And so I wonder, maybe this is what I need right now,
to be in perfect oneness with the Divine,
to need nothing, to want for nothing,
to be at perfect peace with nothing.
Is my highest bliss to be found
in the space of absence?
Am I called to monasticism in the city,
as the hermit in his cave?
I yearn for grace,
and realize you were here all along.
