"Take the adventure, heed the call, now ere the irrevocable moment passes! 'Tis but a banging of the door behind you, a blithesome step forward, and you are out of the old life and into the new!" Kenneth Grahame - Wind in the Willows

Light denied me -
Could not hide me
From its painful
Staring gaze.

Love denied itself
To hide me;
Drew from light
Its loving grace.

Love Crosses The Barren Void

Light crosses the barren void,
A near infinite abyss,
To consume the object of love's desire
In vehement flame.

Love weeps to own what it cannot
Possess, and gives itself
To satiate the flame, which consuming
Is consumed.  What then remains?

The love, the object, and the flame
Are all as one, and all the same;
Each found only in the other
("Thou art called by My name").

Lost yet saved love finds itself
Fully in the fury of the flame;
Love finds itself in the object
Of desire, which bears its name.

Love crosses the barren void,
The infinite abyss to
Consummate the object of desire
In purest light of flame.

Forgiveness

Reconciliation is the greatest expression of forgiveness.

2 Corinthians 5
18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

Death

Death, though an enemy,
Comes as a friend 
And gently says,
"This is the end."
"Of death," I whisper
With a smile as he
Removes the outer layers
Of who I am.  And then,
I walk away.
