Our Beloved


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.

  1. I liked this. I found it wise and comforting. It is more intuitive and in keeping with the way love is supposed to work, to believe that our beloved, as you put it, is where we are.
