As a flame hollows out

a space in snow,

melt my coldness

with the warmth of your love.

As the sea

claims the shore

re-shaping the face of the land,

engulf me, mold me to your contours.









As a stone, standing in the desert,

is sculpted over time by wind and sand

into a stark and eerie beauty,

mark me as your own.

As the motes dance

in the sunlit shaft,

and incense rises, making visible the light,

may I move to your joy, embody your love.

  1. Your words and Roger’s pictures are so beautiful. Thanks and blessings!

  2. Wow! Deep! I have got to read this over and over and think about it.
    I love it!

  3. just lovely…I do so love this time of year…the waiting, anticipation…

    • Glad you liked it, Jane. We seem to feel similarly on quite a lot of things, which is fun.
