Description The lover lowers her gaze and the Beloved raises it until lover is engulfed in oceans too vast to circumscribe and around their margins fly continuous bands of singing birds The lover closes her lips around silence the way light enters a room and obliterates darkness and the Beloved suddenly starts singing inside the lover's mouth until even the stars like wandering animals in their constellational shifts bleat and bay across vast astronomical distances making them as small as the moisture bead on the lover's lip and the Beloved's eye-gleam from as far away as deep undersea The lover stands to embrace the Beloved and the Beloved stands to embrace the lover And the lover stands to embrace the Beloved and the Beloved stands to embrace the lover and the echoes from their movements blow rainbow lights stuttering against earth's canyon walls and icebergs break off and slide into black waters And the Beloved stands and the lover shrinks within the microscopic compass of all her insignificant acts until each breath obliterates her and the Beloved stands to embrace the lover until the whole world rises to a standing position within that embrace An Ant gnaws at a redwood tree and it falls in a straw across a single heartbeat We've never left God's glorious dimension and need only look not within us nor around us but through the sphere of that Glance the Beloved takes and blows into a ball of sky and crashing waves which is all the lover offers through the paucity of her multifaceted I The Singular Embrace -- the Ecstatic Exchange poetry of Daniel Abdal Hayy Moore Ramadan Panama Pacific WaterlilyMaui HawaiiCopyright (C) 2012 Sharon Mau - All Rights ReservedMy images do not belong to the public domain.
