Celestial garden


I see Your face, adorning the tapestry of this beautiful garden;

I feel in my Spirit, a plenitude of wonder and effortless joy.

My tears are the awakener of Your tomorrows;

Your countless drops of compassion-rain,

Now floods and illumine a heart, once

lost in the mire of aridity and disenchantment.

I see You hiding; seeking; dining with Love’s fond embrace,

And I yearn for the doorway, to the beauty of Your dawn.

Your glory has taken me to the pinnacle of wonderment;

Now I lie mute on Your bosom, being cradled by awe.

The fire of my thrills, as served from Your Wok of longing,

Sustain my inevitable hunger; a quest to remain seated,

At the dining table of Your majesty, my Sweet Valentine.

To swoon as one lost in stupor, in Your Bliss-Delight.

      Exquisite sonnet to MarleneB. I love Marlene ...she was one of the very first hubbers to comment on my first hub I had ever published here, so I will always have a special place in my heart. She is a lovely person and great writer.

      I do have three Valentine Beauties ... my three adorable grandchildren!
