The Breath of Love

January 5, 2013

The Breath of Love

Love still exists and though
We are stung by life’s riddles ──
The rain, and by mourning;

The breath of love turns
Everything soft; we are
Lulled by the sound

Brushing through trees ──
The smell of roses pools
Like ponds over water.

Curling rushes form breathless curves;
Stars pour from the Milky Way
So dense, so bright, as if time were on fire

The universe looks back on itself
Through billowing rings of brightness
Our hearts leap to witness such beauty

We are alive with softening light.
Beyond our honeyed dreams
A thousand tongues are loosened.

As with the coupling of a leaf to twig
Love can find a heart where
Even the frost grows deepest.
