The Rendez-Vous

by Sarah Law

(after St Elizabeth of the Trinity)

He is the meeting-place
for those who turn to light
 
the way a flower 
opens to the sun,
 
her pollen mingling
on the bee's wings 
 
with all the open ones.
And so I bid you pray
 
in synchronicity with me
(we earth-bound souls
 
still wuthering in time). 
I recently discovered
 
how our own loosed kin
already dwell in Him
 
and how, to meet,
we only need to tune ourselves 
 
to love's long song.
