Gentle Strength

 

Our fingers intertwined,fingers
our souls re-joined,
our hearts spanned distance and time ~
Reminders of encounters in lives long past,
when we dwelled in the presence of the Divine.

I thought of days of sadness
… of endless, sleepless nights,
of futile attempts at climbing..
but plummeting from towering heights.

With his gentle strength, he held me,
as I laid my appeased soul against him..
My burdens released, finally at peace
I felt my spirit flow within him

I closed my eyes,
and I wept..
.. and I wept ~
as walls of resistance came crumbling down,
and in serene tranquility,
I slept..
..and I slept ~
in the middle of his ocean I gently drowned.

grape to wine..

“you are grape to wine”

Alas.. what the grape must endure
~ to become the wine ~
~ from the moment it is picked from the vine ~
~ a purpose divine ~
~ an ecstasy sublime ~
in perfect design.

Be like the flower that gives its fragrance to even the hand that crushes it.”
