- The Word Of God
Tuesday, May 22, 2012
Perhaps, wide-eyed, you‘ve heard it,
your heart pressed hard against some tiny world:
a celebration bursts clean from a lily‘s bud,
or the flash of plumage from a diving wren.
Love draws itself from the sonorous earth,
and rouses like a waking god.
Listen: it sings at once from the thickest rocks core,
and strongly from the ocean‘s coldest deep;
is present as the canyon opens wide
to receive the naked glory of the sky.
The sequoia rises from a gnarl of roots
like a giant vibrant length of praise.
Put down all cold books that snare,
stifle all verses that barb and numb,
to join hands with life is a hymn in itself,
bare feet in wild dust: an answered prayer.
The divine thrives in the world as sense:
no word or name can form its tongue.
The sunlight, pooled and gleaming warm
in the cleavage of a lover‘s breast,
and touch, closer than caressing light itself,
holds its secret like a sacred flame:
our bodies merge as the Word of God -
into love we dissolve as divination.
Closer Than Light
Take care, keep safe, and stay beautiful,
With love and peace,
