Oh Love…

who can measure the depth of your
mystery…

intangible
invisible
devoid of fragrance and of taste
ever silent…

impossible too… to measure out
your image

sit
for a moment

really look at all you see…

hands cupped to your eyes
Love looks small indeed…

hands released…
this room appears…

while outside…

the far horizon…
sky and heavens… show a grander vision

yet how trivial… how fleeting

compared to Love entire…

revealed through
words… the image of the known…

wherever you look
what’s seen is simply ‘surface’

inside each thing…

unseen
yet known...

on every scale
are all its inner workings…

down to quantum levels

and out beyond the far horizon…
a known world of land and sea…

and deep beneath
its molten core…

ever hidden from the eye…

but not the mind of God

who contemplates it
with these words…

from out the hidden mystery of the knowing

and known far beyond…

the vast and ancient swirl of galaxies and nebulae
whose own bodies
too are built
of atoms
forming mighty orbs

how immense this seems

until measured against the enormity…

of everything…
on every scale…

at every moment… of all time…

yet what you contemplate
is still…

so incomparably minute

for this is
but one
of the numberless universes

imaging... this Love…

and this not near the limit…

now grasp
every physical and chemical and biologic process
and all astronomical, atmospheric and geologic too...

and how they are marvellously entwined…

and the life of every living thing at every moment in every place and time
in all possible universes…

and of those to whom Love
gives her own awareness…

as if seeing out their eyes…

hearing
tasting
smelling
feeling from their perspective...

every moment of their lives

and every relationship in which they are involved...

and of all dreamscapes dreamed from the perspective of every dreaming creature

contemplate too
every device possible...

and every activity - work and play...

all thoughts and emotions music maths

and

meaning known…

and if you…

Love

are not now in awe…

of Love…

then
Love
indeed has hidden her face from you...

Oh blessed Love

behind the veil
of ignorance…

but only in this moment…

to play… at playing
two…

Lover and Beloved…

the One hiding...

the One seeking…

Love
