Grace

I saw grace
Flowing 
Like a waterfall
But a drop
Is all I could grasp
The more I tried
To take hold
The less I seemed
To have
Tangible
Yet elusive
Frustration
Made me wonder
If grace
I could know
In any measure
And then
Everything changed
When I stopped 
I stopped grabbing
For grace
And instead
I cupped my hands
Watched them fill
And took a drink
Suddenly
I was revived
Refreshed
Hydrated
With living water
So often I grab
When I simply need
To receive
