RE: Union

Midline cracks
The ancient barrier
Between us
Chunks and pieces tumble
Stirring clouds of dust and debris
Clouding my vision

The barrier arose
Stone by stone
With rain and strain
With pain and disdain

As billows settle
A lost dream
I recognize
That handsome figure
Chiseled features
Sable tresses
Tender eyes
Brawny chest
Divine handiwork

He steps to lay
With strong hand
On the crumbling rubble
His forgotten covenant
Of charity
To his bride

A foundational fracture
My unsentimental heart
I remember my vow
Before high festivities
Of Ritz and Rolls
A veil floating behind
New gold
On intertwined fingers

Then unaware
The rocky vertical path
Traversed apart
Hands long released

I step to lay
With delicate hand
Upon the ruins
My tattered covenant
Of love
To my groom

Initiating renovation
He covers my gold with his
Breaking ground

A new foundation
Intimate relation
Of oneness


Psalm 126:3-5
The Lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord,
like streams in the Negev.
5 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
