Of Great Price

facets and filigree

tumbled free by the sea,

layers of reality

this fleshy vulnerability,

wrapped in time’s

illusory chamber.


will we be lifted

and drifted

from the tongue

by circumstance?

or drawn gently inward,

to nest

in the lustrous nacre

of love’s grace.


Discernment always involves community, even if you are under the illusion that you are alone in your choices. The universe is,in its very nature, relational.
