Behold the opportunity that is given now to know love

Your body is love’s temple,
and your heart is its tavern.
Your eyes are its windows
into eternity.

Your words of kindness
are its voice, and the ways
you tenderly touch
and hold another
are its sweet arms.

Give your heart
to this world and take everything
here as your sweetest lover;
allow yourself to be crafted
as a golden vessel
of the beloved one.

It can be astonishing to realize
that it is only through you
that love can find safe passage
into this weary world.

Be astonished, friend,
and fall to the ground
at the opportunity
that is here
to know love.
