The Astonishing Light

The Astonishing Light   

(a new poem)

I am a devotee
Of sunrise, sunset,
Sunlit flowers and leaves,
And love. But why?
Friend, I want to show you
The astonishing light that
Shines in this world
Of shadows
So you will know
You are never alone
And always
In the presence
Of grace.
I want you to look
In my eyes
And see the reflection
Of your inner light
And fall in love
With your
Exalted self. I want
To awaken you
To illuminated moments
When sunbeams penetrate
Shadow and form
And extend a ramp
To paradise.
