I breathe in and you breathe out,
my heart’s upbeat to your heart’s downbeat —
In between the two, we meet.
We are pressed together like autumn leaves,
like awe and wonder in a memory-book
written out in spinal column symmetry.
With a passionate lotus-scented prayer,
I unfold before your sacred body altar,
surrendered in the remembrance
of who we truly are.
We are anointed in a fathomless Love,
in a quicksilver light surge igniting
and striking us from sole to crown.
Shining with the brightest delight,
a Joy born of a grace-filled glory . . .
Something beyond and before
all human knowledge or spiritual power
shoulders us beyond the gods’ playing field.
I worship at the spirit tableaux
of a scintillating triple-heart spill,
stilled to stone at the tone of such
an evocative thrill-sound throating.
This ripple raptured snapshot of Such a Love
has become a sacred offering to ourselves,
born from the subtle emanations of our Love,
the Endlessness of Inconceivable Love,
the Love we’re always forever becoming.
