A bell rings,

the music begins,

and so too the mystery.
Sound on sound

builds the song,

and you are there,

filling me with love.

oh my Love, 

they trace a path through me,

then draw me away,

far away from concerns

and toward the present Moment,

spiraling higher, farther,

until I can just apprehend

the soft shores of that homeland
to which I will return
when this work is done.
In the present Moment,

I think not on our home, 

but on how good it is

to be filled with your light,

with your love.
So filled,

I cannot but pour myself out,

an evermore song to honor Thee.
