Gentleness of the Beloved

00 luminous light of spirit

Runaway thoughts
of a worrying mind
slowly steal
the joy
of the sacrament
of the present moment
filled with revelations
of the dance of life
when the earth
suddenly kneels
and lowers the curtain
on the miracles
of friendship and love..
the sigh of beauty
that comes
in the soft brush of blossoms
set free by a breeze..
a moment as intimate
as the breath
of the Beloved..
the glow of sunlight
on the face of a lover..
the curve of a smile
that shelters the secret
of being loved..
the sweetness of laughter
that flows between
souls embraced
by God
