the mystical presence

this very moment
harbors revelation
on many levels
when even dimly aware
of the unspoken
presence
hidden and dwelling
within
the heart

the great mystery
shelters secrets
of unending treasures
and yet
so many
choose to follow
behind
the runaway mind
dragging
us around by our fears

what reality
do we experience
within the reverence
of silence

who or what is the nameless
presence
of sweet consolation
that stirs
a remembrance
of love

where is the hidden altar
of our faith

who is it invites our
surrendering

there is great creative
power
in aligning
with the heart
in the midst of chaos
and confusion

the portals open
to invite
you inside the holiness
of a welcoming love
a beauty
just beyond our reach

suddenly a presence
reaches out
to bridge the distance
and we feel
a touch
we cannot see

someone is spreading
petals
on the path
and praying you will dare
to wander
into the mystery
and beauty
of your own heart

when the portal was open
and unguarded
someone slipped
inside
and found rays of light
leading
to the moon
