Art by Norman E. Masters
With what joy! you sweeten our lives, Sophia. Your serenity is a balm that calms the pure of heart. You are the eternally dynamic dance of the Divine into time, Shekhina; your loveglow of light is the day*shine of our living, coruscating & iridescent across the skies of morning... Your joy-laughter lingers in echoes of fading tinkling bells, moon*chimes, blending into a canticle of birdsong. You are the Shekhina of Peace who is come to soothe our souls, so tenderly, so all-generously. O bounteous abundance of Your loving! Your Love is a cornucopia -- all the fruits of paradise. The tranquillity of universal Silence in the star-glow of Your womb settles upon my soul like moondust... You sweeten my lips with the ambrosia of the eternals.
