Ecstasy Dust

you sprinkle my heart
with Ecstasy Dust
as I dance between
these golden words
to be with you,
to lay at your feet
as if before embodiment,
I long to be in your Presence~
Jewel of my soul,
O Joy of all joys,
you named me “Returning
so how could I escape it?
My palms burn with love
for there is no one to touch,
there is nothing to aspire for
but your Effulgence;
yesterday is present again,
you cup my cheeks
with your hands,
and I unravel in
the glory of Nothing,
your divine tenderness…
