Mathew 25:13 

Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

Ask why

Blinded by pretension
of sight, nothing is seen but
the surface sheen the arrogant
mind imagines is all
that is, when all that is
hides the One Love present
playing behind, beneath.
beyond and within all that is.

Blind eyes do not ask why
there is anything at all,
why life, or why this
crazy love, irresistible
magnetic, drawing the yearning
heart home as sun glow
illumines the art of autumn
leaves from far horizon,
earth’s star setting once more,
sweetest light of day, caressing
earth’s wonder, delighting
hearts one last time before
dieing in the purple night to
spring again from eastern shore,
light of tomorrow opening our
eyes to miracles, no
just one, to the Love
who makes us human, alive, free,
glowing within with light whose
Source no eye can see,
no mind can know.

Then, illumined and alive,
finally sighted and hope-filled, 
we know this is the day, this 
the hour of salvation; Eternal 
Love, who always is, welcomes
us again to know … and live
a life of knowing why,
why life, why this crazy
love yearning for home, why
the dieing light makes art 
of autumn afternoons

Psalm 70:1

You take delight, O Radiant One in gracing me with new life! O Beloved, come and renew me! 

From me to we

Delight of my Life, light
my world, this heart with
the wonder of wordless
Love, the smile of Beauty
complete, unspeakable
spinning the mind, stealing
all hand-holds, leaving
nothing to grasp, but
awareness of this elusive
undeniably real Presence,
filling the secret room
with the Radiance
of heart-to-Heart union
where knowing completes
hope’s desire.

Your Love is life at
new day’s appearance,
awakening anticipation
for what will be, thankful
for what is, wanting always
the More you are, that in
union there is no more me,
only we …
in the day life is complete and
wanting is no more, for
Love is all in all.

Pr. David L. Miller
