Sheltered beneath the Wings of the Beautiful One

“In the center is a Sanctuary

and I am calling you to come inside,”

the Beautiful One said in a voice soft as thought.

Outside, pale prophets spoke the Words of Night,

contagious fear spreading from their cold lips.

“Pay it no heed,” says She.

“In the Sanctuary, an Incandescent Fire resides.

The helpless heart is strong.”

Her words touch so close

to my penetrated heart that I am afraid to hope.

“Enter into Sanctuary, enter into Peace,” She says.

“Pain and fear cannot exist within;

they are Other.

“I know,”  I say, “of Incandescent Fire,

and Sanctuary is the entering within.”

The Beautiful One smiles,
