Poems for the Smiling Heart

Sacred Delight

It is a sacred delight
When the rising moon whispers into the ear of the owl
When a shell nods in the sand that sculpts the ocean floor
When cosmic dust births planets and stars
as a new world is born.

It is a sacred delight
To hear a birdsong fall between two seeds of spring
To touch a thought of kindness in a twisted hand
To see your smile so generously announcing
that the world is now complete.

It is this sacred delight
That binds our hearts to its radiance
That teases our minds into its harmony
That invites our souls to reveal
that our world can be transformed.
