celestial harmonies

a poem is a holy flower
taking root & blossoming
in your own heart

or words that rise
like the dawn
in your own vermilion

poems teach us
that we are the curious sky,
the searching sea,
the patient earth

& that we too
are poems
as love is
a poem

we throw our arms
around each other
like the holy letter

& we laugh
because even death
is un-masked
as a poem & a lover

when we feel troubled
by the poem of the dark,
God will whisper
a poem of heaven in our ear

& we realize
we are that poem
of the beginning
& the end of
