Seeing

And may that love within our hearts
Set fire to others with its flame.
                                                 Universalis Hymn



Again this bending seeing
to a small-dwelling detail of Your boundless 
beauty:
a flame-red leaf 
that has just landed 
on the planet 
at my feet;
a contoured thought 
from You
coming to rest in me:
as fire leaps large
from slightest 
matter
into the thick gaze of the heart,
which is contemplation
bearing the particularities
of divinity
into the bright-vast vistas
of the delighted soul.
