The mind says “Wait, wait,
just a little longer
until the days lengthen.
Then the world will be brighter.”
The Beloved answers, “Now, now,
this moment stretches to eternity.
Close your eyes
and bask in My sunshine.
“Your inner tulips already blossom.
Your hyacinths and daffodils burst with joy.
Whenever you wait for spring
you leave Me and enter the eternal winter
where My rays cannot caress you.
“Throw open your door
run naked through the piñon forest.
Let Me warm you
until you realize your own Radiance.”
Happy Holidays, dear readers!
