Where Solitude Blooms

by Marietta Lea B. Rosana

Where solitude blooms
I think of You, O God,
in endless rapture.

As vast as the sky 
is Your love
Who am I that You take delight 
oblivious of my transgressions?

You bless my mind 
with sunbeams
lilting rainbows in my heart,
fashion my becoming

Oh, I am but dross
Purified by Your embrace.
