Our Beloved is not hiding in the forest behind some trees,
or even behind the clouds, waiting to roll the thunder
down on us, as he watches our fear trembling,
no Our Beloved is not like that.
The One who loves beyond
all space and time, is more like a lover
walking along the beach with us,
as we both watch the waves,
while being astounded
by the ocean.
