The Stories of Paradise

 

The stories

Of paradise

 

Reminding me

Of evil

 

Of beauty

And union

 

And divine

Eternal communion.

 

Spring (The Earthly Paradise), Poussin

We Gather

  

We gather

Because

 

Our bonds

Grow deeper

 

Than ivy

Or mistletoe

 

Because

Our communion

 

Outlasts the darkness

And storm

 

And because

In the silence

 

And candlelight

We feel

 

Something of the divine

Union.

Unexpected

 

Our communion

Was never perfect

 

We had to be shown

The way

 

Which was

A different way

 

Unexpected

Unprepared for

 

Who came down

From heaven

 

Was made

Man

 

And pointed us

Graciously

 

To

God.
