Gift of the Night
I gazed into the mirror, and
Saw the face of God.
Enraptured by its beauty,
I lost myself completely.
With loving kindness, God
Breathed upon the mirror,
Misting the reflection of myself,
Showing me the deeper way of seeing.
Abandoned to the night,
I stumbled through the darkness,
The substance of my shadow self dissolving
Into the moonlight of God's grace.
God continues watching,
Guiding this translucent self, back
To the mirror, where less obstructed than before,
I see the face of God, my face.
