the beautiful sue fox
darkness gives way to holy
this gathering light
how i savor each note of your glory song.
as the last cold stars of winter fade on the open palm of awakening;
all your warmth and beauty calls us out
into the gathering light.
i am swept away once more at your profound
ability to pluck the seeds of hope
from our darkest nights.
the quilt of winter is slowly folding in on itself.
soon the house of our dreams
will be light and airy,
windows will open themselves within us all.
it is the way of things;
darkness finally giving way to our holy
longing for clarity and light.
how you stir so wildly the passion to let loose-
bursting our hearts in a crush of blooming;
spreading our love
of life and each other across the horizon.
thank you. for propping us up in your persuasive welcoming.
for placing bright cups of happiness on the footpaths of life.
for letting loose a soft wind
that even now lifts a mysterious veil; reminding us
to fall gracefully like so many spent petals;
in the great current of love.
bright cups of happiness
on the footpath of life
