Divine Embrace

A moment when heaven
lowers a veil
to touch the horizon of the sea
and the sea reaches to touch the shore.

The eyes of my heart sweep upward
to the sky reaching to touch thee, O God,

The expanding beauty stirs and moves my soul
to flow in rhythmic waves of love,
to feel your breath in the wind
drawing me into a deep kiss
uniting the sky and sea,
my heart and soul and thee.

Life is filled with the sweet surprise
of the loving gaze
of my beloved’s eyes
caressing me in countless ways
filling my days
with visions of grace,
while my nights conceal the face
of divine embrace
filled with the lingering
mysteries of love.
