Star Dance

There are some feelings
some moments of revealed truth
that transcend words
and the limitation of our human ability
to reach far enough
or high enough
to describe
the holy gift of abiding
in this existence
once we have truly been touched
by sacred love
love that scatters seeds
of brilliant light
and color
the fire and flame of lightning
that pierces the heart
and gives birth to divine wonder
and inclusiveness
that beholds the precious
kingdom within us
through eyes
that see
all creation as gift

the too muchness of love
becomes a revelation
that explodes and fills the sky
with a dancing star
the stunning reflection
and deep beauty
of a blinding flash of the heart
bursting into a vision
of union
with the soul
