autumn’s symphonies – in the garden of pomegranates


in the garden of pomegranates

(to the Muse of muses)

 

“…I bare you to myself… on eagle’s wings…”

-Exodus 19.4

come1

almost full rising

sailing consciously as lightly

quickening sun shimmering

 

breath within breath

ruach me ruach

hart within hart

 

praying hands liberating

patiently unveiling gently

kindling all still souls not shining

 

water within breath

mayyim me ruach

water within hart

 

daytime finds hart of hart singing

laughter dancing between all souls

perceiving each creature clearly

 

fire within water

esh mi mayyim

spirit within soul

 

becoming sharpens being

nowly nefesh

truly ruach

freely neshamah

only chayah

nothingness all embracing yechidah

 

breath of the great ones within me

ruach eloyhim chayyim

spirit of the great ones within me

 

beginnings unrobe endings

eagles soaring above cloudstorms melting

crystalline dew all dissolving

 

soul  within spirit

ruach me ruach

spirit within soul

 

as beyond all souls dreaming

of sunlit wildflowers invoking

so receiving completes giving

wine within water

mayyim me ruach

spirit within flesh

 

as unbroken minds unfold unbroken harts

of nothingness involving somethingness

so twainess creating meaningfulness is

 

fire within wine

esh mi mayyim

`               spirit within blood

 

finitely one

devoutly two

infinitely three

numinosity within

embracing

luminosity beyond

 

ruach eloyhim chayyim

spirits within living water lifting all creatures

ruach eloyhim chayyim

 

each lifting the other on eagles wings

brighter days prophecy still richer dreams

da’at  beings embrace tifereth becoming

 

ruach eloyhim chayyim

spirits beyond holy fire refining all creation

ruach eloyhim chayyim

 

within the just arms of merciful love

where living waters reflect holy fire

 

spirit of the blessed holy one completing me

your love,

my undying love,

is all this yet more

spirit of the blessed holy one completing me

 

as once so always, beloved, as now so forever

vihayah, Yahweh, vihayah

 

amen,  selah,  shalom,  shalom,  selah,  amen.

  1. beginnings unrobe endings — philosophically beautiful.

  2. EmBeth says:

    I like reading a particular section as though it was on loop; this (stanza?) starts with “finitely one…”

    • …that you perceive the lemniscate (infinite loop) in this poem validates my perception that you are my Muse of muses…your sagacity is deeply gratifying manna to my poetic soul…thank you for releasing a river sweet tears…<3
