offering

Offering

Oh, indefinable source and object of all seeking
please let this body
this mind
this heart
be always and all ways
an arati flame for your ever unfolding puja

Tonight!
there is thunder and rain
lightning revealing your form in the formless
please allow your formlessness to give shape
to every thought
every word
every deed

somehow, hoping, isn't this already so?

Lightning
ignite this vision
thunder
awaken this knowing
rain
nourish the wonderment
arati flame
let there always be remembering

There is gypsy music just within hearing
beneath, through, in
the rain
the flashes and the thunder
singing in an indistinguishable tongue
wild and whirling
compelling in
the immediacy of devotion
a part of every moment
affirming every instant
