The Calm Ghazal

Feeling Love flies higher than light butterfly wings
I dreamt then I'd fashion the heart to net Love in.

Feeling blessings approach as the unfolding Spring
I wished to have them all welcomed but not dragged in.

Seeing Wisdom walk the hillsides, Love guiding him
I throw open the doors here, let them walk right in.

Essences of leaf and petal fill to the brim
the cup that holds my drop of ocean deep within.

I am Adam flown from a fruiting tree to know
the stars, Love the never-ending sky I move in.
