SACRED IMPULSE

Free Verse Poem

A LIGHT WHISPER

‘COME SIT WITH ME IN THIS BRIGHT SUNSHINE’

I SAT AT MY FRONT DOORSTEP

SUCH BRILLIANT LIGHT BEAMING THROUGH THE HARDWOODS

I SHUT MY EYES GLANCING UPWARD

TO BEHOLD REFULGENT RAYS BEAMING DOWN MY FACE

HOLDING MY PRAYER BEADS ONE BY ONE

MARY, HERE I AM

THEN YOUR RADIANT FIGURE DANGLED CLOSER TOWARDS ME

YOUR ROSARY STRETCHING DOWN TO MEET MINE

AND DEWY DROPS STREAMED DOWN MY CHEEKS

I COULD NO LONGER UTTER SOUND

BUT BATHE IN YOUR HEAVENLY PRESENCE

AND PRAY WITH YOU IN PURE SILENCE, AMEN.

your scribe for love
