What Is An Offering

DSCF1805

what is an offering
if not love’s face?
 
heart guiding hand
into intricate movements
 
the whole body mobilized
for the single sacred purpose
 
soft, firm and delicate
transfixed in the making
 
the tender embracing of
Earth’s sweet scents
 
transmuted into woven
formations ocean deep
 
the sun a gleaming witness
the moon’s grace in hiding
 
the gathering, the giving,
the chant of devotion
 
what is an offering
if not love’s gentle face? – TS
