Sunlight through a trilith at Stonehenge


Love brings learning
to this imperfect pupil;
illuminates my peafowl glories
and too, my colorless ebbs.
An ever-enduring tutor,
it does not turn away
from the stubborn face
of my indomitable impatience.
No, Love lasts and lingers on
even when I resist,
denying that I embody it
and am worthy of it.

When I am ready
(and sometimes when I’m not)
Love hands me a new text,
opening a level of this lesson.
So I step up to the chapter,
backpack full of fear and expectations
and dare myself to be present
to a new wisdom, a new way.
A way where we are whole and strong within ourselves.
A way where I am my rock and you are yours.
A way where we thrive, side by side;
two stones, standing in a heart-henge.

Let us not try to be one another’s rocks.
Let us be two solid selves;
two great posts of a timeless trilith.
With our igneous toes
settled deep in the ground,
let our shining arms of devotion
reach high and proud above us…
oh, divine lintel.
Let our knees bend easy with the earth’s shifts.
Let our skins wear the green of growing change.
For we are whole beauty unto ourselves,
as we shape a doorway for balance and light.
