heart-leaves drying, rustling
in filling wind, falling to earth, grounding
of course I love you
I love you like sunshine
makes my closed eyelids glow red
warms the air and my forehead
defines the dancing shadows of the aspen branches
their shaky leaves, ready to fly
Jesus, what do I need?
Red. Close your eyes in the sun.
Red – Blood Red.
flowering red, fractal red
sometimes the truth is hard to hear
sometimes hard to see through
Lord, shine your blood-red sunlight
into the deep of me
the hidden heart
the rock-shaped part
where will set the Stone that bears my
known only by you
lucent ruby in a gold coronet
revealing my worth:
I am Beloved.
