We were in a room, sitting together,
light streaming in from unshaded windows.
Sitting on the floor, in silence, you and I.
No need to speak, listening instead
to the deep rhythms of the heart.
A long time passes, no time passes.
I quietly said to you, "I'm enjoying being here with you now."
And you said to me, "And I'm enjoying being here with you."
Silence. Time/no time passes.
I said to you, "I see the Light of Christ within you."
And you said to me, "And I see the light of Christ within you."
And then the blessing came to me,
from some distant/near place within the heart.
"Where ever you go, and where ever I go,
holy ground shall span the distance between us..."
