come sit with me

Odilon Redon, The Golden Cell

 

Come sit with me.

 

I have plumped up a cushion for you.

There’s a box outside the door –
you can leave your mind there
(no charge).

 

Rest in this silent spaciousness,
allowing succulent stillness
to fill your tired bones.

 

Stay.

Stay until you hear
the whisper of your heart’s wisdom:

“This unfathomable peace – it is my own
unadorned aliveness!”

 

Stay.

Please stay!

 

And when you go
you will know a secret
that can never again be un-known.

 

Beloved,

you

and you alone

are the love of your life.
