gaze of the beloved

gaze of the beloved

a river reverses its flow to turn toward
the light of the gaze of the beloved

the world reverses its turning
when the gaze of the beloved falls upon it

a mountain moves
when the beloved approaches

the waters of the sea part
when the beloved passes through the waters

the stars burst into a climax of color
when the beloved lays in the grass to gaze at them

the moon erupts into rhythmic tides
to touch the shore of the beloved

the treasures leap from the dust
when the hands of the beloved reach for them

the womb of the heart opens
to welcome the seeds of light of the beloved

the enemy lays down his sword
in the tenderness of the gaze of the beloved

the slumbering beauty awakens
when the gaze of the beloved enters the heart

the gate of paradise opens
when the beloved comes to the garden
