Keeping watch in the dark….

“Your body is away from me,
but there is a window open
from my heart to yours.”
― Jalaluddin Mevlana Rumi


I’m keeping my eyes
wide open,
watching in the dark,
bathing in streams of radiance,
for that spark.

I’m scanning the horizon,
listening to the birds,
sacred havens,
and hanging on Your word.

I can see You in the details
of each Earthling’s life,
clothed in transfiguration,
awareness I can’t describe.

Fragments of my substance,
disintegrate in outer space,
though sanctuaries of silence,
bring me back
to love’s embrace.

You’re with me in the heartache,
and You’ve seen my wounded soul,
You comfort me with kindness,
and in peace
I am consoled.
