Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad,
  let the sea and its fullness resound.
The fields will rejoice, and all that is in them,
  all the trees of the woods will rejoice
  at the Lord’s presence – for he comes...
                                                                                     Psalm 96

                                  You are beautiful, my beloved,
                                  easing into  
                                  the long bed of night; 
                                  deep-indigo, star-dust satin
                                  you brighten each morning. 

                                  Your light becoming 
                                  what it touches:
                                  peridot pastures torching
                                  the blurred lines 
                                  of heaven and earth.

                                  Fire rings of maples 
                                  opening their fists of rubies,
                                  citrines and sapphires,
                                  scattering like broken necklaces
                                  across the blue-silver 
                                  floors of the autumn air,
                                             our hearts' seasons and solstices.

                                  Your light twisting
                                  through the toppling topazes 
                                  across the bolts of fields
                                  rustling the gold-
                                  spun realms of beauty
                                  you are spinning on your wheel 
                                  of immeasurable love

                                  in the silence you are speaking
                                  or song you are singing
                                  us through.
