Burning in and burning out

Burning in and burning out

A shard of light rifled through infinity to embrace a petalled bulb,
across echoless voids enough to tempt The Christ.

Waterless and unbound by pathways yet still it arrowed straight,
no curtained silence, no hiding place, with a single radiant intent.

And then dispersed it scattered to a million points of purpose,
toward Corners, Desserts and Oceans, subtracted, refracted then gone.

I’ll ride that shaft of eternity some day and be carried to illumination,
burning like a returning Son, to flicker out and fade to nothing.

Oh but what a journey to just see its very end.

Toward the Bliss

womansunsummer

And when I opened my eyes at last
when the fear had subsided
and my throat let me breathe

I saw your face and heard Angels Sing
God told me that I was God
and he was just a voice in my wilderness

He took my hand
and we walked into the Sun
and everything I knew just fell away

Toward the Bliss
