Revelation! The veil lifts!
In my every cell I know
the Numinous is in that bloom of love
I feel for any beauty,
for people in their uniqueness,
their courage and frailty;
for the deep intimacy of poems,
love letters to and from the Holy;
for this living Life,
when I am suddenly
so unexpectedly present
I disappear and
body and soul.
Oh, gorgeousness of Life,
chartreuse bird, white birch,
red-purple peony’s red-purple perfume,
African drums in my heartbeat,
Mozart dancing in golden slippers on crystal stairs,
purple cloud-shadows moving on mountains,
taste of rain and chocolate and soft lips,
quickening of exquisite joy, exquisite grief.
It is the end of searching,
the beginning of resting-in.
All Life is water of wonder.
And I am infinite sponge.
