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.
