through her he was to know god by pd lyons

through her he was to know god

she brought him inward

through a darkness full of wonder

empty of fear

she shared him mysteries

free from all that was jagged

it was not big

it was not seduction

it was an encompassing healing

a grace full of joyful weeping

silence the first breath he ever fully took her beauty communion

in those open spaces of the heart, by pd lyons


Where can i always meet you?

where can we always be alone?


those open spaces

shadow lives

summers linger

all  ghosts laugh


weeping is for beauty

sweet and savory.

all pain, in remedy

honey tipped restored.


where i always meet you

in those open spaces of the heart






a most perfect song
