Savored love

Savored love                          



I forgot that Love existed, Morrison growls –

an effort to express the bewilderment,



the essential ineffability of the revelation. 

When God reminds you of Who He Is,



no glib retort comes to mind.  A cry

of some sort might escape your lips



as your heart tries to leap from your chest. 

You wonder how your legs can carry the weight,



if your brain will ever jump back into gear,

when you remember ... when you remember ...



when your heart remembers – Love exists.

And ... if God is Love, Love is God.



The Almighty, as a concept, might be elusive –  

but, we’ve all savored love



and the deeper we’ve drawn from the well

the more precious and purer



we’ve found the water.  Debris brushed aside,

the heart begins to flow again



as a living source.  When Love is remembered ...

profoundly remembered – existence is bathed anew



in the light and sheen

of pristine Truth and infinite possibilities.



O child of God, again and again we are returned

to our lost and forgotten heritage.
