I Prayed For Delight. A Sonnet to Janis Leslie Evans (janshares)
A Soothing One For You, my Dear Friend
I prayed for Light;
He cascaded rainbows, of ever-effulgent beauty.
I prayed for Liberation;
My heart sang sweetly, as I felt the thrills of Grace.
I prayed for Peace;
The Beloved embraced me,
With the stillness of a trillion dawns.
I asked for the supernal minstrels;
Sweet silent melodies echoed in my Core.
I prayed for Love,
The Beloved kissed my Soul sweetly;
I saw the face of Infinity, as we became One.
I prayed for Delight;
I knew only the birthless and deathless joy of Spirit.
