To discover myself
I trusted Grace.

knew what to do –

I didn’t have one blessed clue
until Her arrow pierced me through, and
then a river poured forth, a gracious kindness
water offers to the dust, nourishing all thirsty forms,
the fruit of nature’s gracious impersonal felicity, timed
before time to arrive and just as soon evaporate in the mirror
of my own appearing, again and again, discovering myself in
birth and death, forgetting myself in that parade of appearances,
ephemeral forms of myself streaming, borne along on a river of grace,
leading me at last to you, you to me, fluidity, I needed that, to discover
you, to see you, to touch you, to die in you and then again be born in you,
the one who was never other than myself, discovering me, reflecting love
back to itself as the seamless revelation of all that’s true, of two-not-two,
and ever shall remain by grace the laughing eyes in the dearest face,
the flood at the heart you stir in me, the rapture of communion,
lovingly cradling us to the grave and beyond, not here
or there or anywhere else that could ever amount
to anything other than the feeling of Grace
expanded to infinity.
