Mother God….


virgin mother


Mother of God
similar to fire,
Ignite my heart in prayer.
Where once I stood on familiar ground
selecting my spiritual experiences
like choice morsels from a well tended-larder,
now my garden has gone up in flames
and I thirst only for the Living God.
Let me find him, Mother
as you do
deep inside my own ripened being.
Let me swallow the Sacred
and burn with that Presence,
illuminating the way home to Truth.
Lit from within,
let my blazing heart become a sanctuary
for the weary traveller,
until this long night lifts
and dawn unfolds a new radiance.
