Completing the circle

After I John 4:13-5:5

I stand here, holding
a final piece, an arc,
staring at the pieces
already in circular place.
All I need to do
for completion is to let go
and allow the piece to fall
into place. The question,
if there is a question,
is whether I can love the one
standing next to me,
his piece of arc already
dropped into place.
I know who he is,
this neighbor, but it is not
the question for me to ask.
That he’s dropped his arc
Into place is sufficient.
My arc pulls toward
the circle, and I let go,
allowing it to fall
into place.
