Rapture

Updated: Feb 5, 2021



Before the sacred silence is all encompassing

Before the universe emanates from a singular core of fire and light

Before stars explode and planets rise

Before oceans become a watery womb to life itself

I AM EXISTENCE

Before snow blankets cedars in Northern mountains

Before a forrest of alpine larches set the hills on fire

Before the wind stirs up an undulating flow of waves on prairie fields

Before rain washes over dusty ground and cleanses everything

Before wildflowers and honeybees

Before a watchful deer stands motionless in the morning meadow

Before sunrise

Before sunset

I AM LIFE

Before the cries of the world ring out

Before grief settles in like a dense fog

Before the sting of tears

Before anger erupts

Before the doubt creeps in

Before the bough breaks

I AM LONGING

Before the first breath is drawn

Before the belly rounds

Before a heart starts beating

Before bodies dissolve in the aftermath of ecstasy

Before the sweet rapture when two become one

Before souls touch

Before eyes meet

I AM LOVE

Before enlightenment

Before the holy emptiness

Before you know yourself to be nothing

Before you know yourself to be everything

Before the pauses between heartbeats entangle with infinity

Before...

Before the breath drops

Before the movement of mind becomes obsolete

Before you take your seat

Before you are called home

Before you even imagine yourself to be lost at all

I AM
