Into the Softness

bride of consciousness 1 © 2015 heather rhodes studio petronella all rights reserved
 

and so I follow her;
into the softness...

quiet.
sacred.
this passage…

this organic ceremony
of the widening;

insulated communion,
no intermediary,
no distraction,
just the two of us…

liquid, silken
surrender;

my hand in hers,
in and in and in,
beyond all edges…

trusting her
explicitly.

opening
my
soul-eyes.

this exquisite wedding
and ensuing banquet feast,
wherein I am
the bride
of consciousness itself…

for this experience, 
I know of no language;

only that I
am becoming
more and more available
to the great pulse of love
that breathes
the very heart of the cosmos…
