Beauty


What was in that candle's light

that opened and consumed me so quickly?



Come back, my friend. The form of our love

is not a created form.

Nothing can help me but that beauty.



There was a dawn I remember when my soul

heard something from your soul.



I drank water from your spring,

and felt the current take me.



---Rumi

This line popped out: "The form of our love is not a created form." Love is unborn, undying, formless. Thanks for sharing this Meredith!

I love serving up a bit of delight, and having my friends come by for a slice.

I thank each of you for your Graceful Presence here at this table.
