The Awakened Heart

let us come...

bearing the eucharist of love
unto the mystery of each other

the awakened heart
reveals the secrets of the soul,
is a mystic light, radiating
into our breathing world

feel the ineffable joy,
here, where the spirit of love
is pure & holy, amidst
designs as simple as beauty,
designs full of mystical attraction
where spirit is as simple as form
where sanctitude is bright & sweet,
serene & joyful, where eyes
colored with mortal blood
are alit with divine wisdom

with a passion to be as holy
as those highest truths
upwelling from the depths of your soul

give yourself over to wise ends
& allure souls to gentleness & wholeness

drink deeply of heavenly smiles
& lips whispering wisdom's blessings
feeling the exquisite touch
of tears flowing from the depths
of your own inner beauty as you feel
the sacramental holiness permeating all-thru
*real*izing the Divine Love of the Universe
is deeply pleased to be
womanifesting He/rself --
so shiningly --
as *you*.
