The Heart is a Light

The Heart is a Light
For Koyote the Blind

A light shines in darkness
A heart blazes
A flame in the wilderness
Under the blue canopy of sky
A bush the burns in the desert

The truth has a friend
Who makes introductions
In the sacred tongues
To the cool moon and warm sun

A friend who stalks
hidden pathways amid the wavering stars
flashing out of the purple deep
winking with the rhythmic breath of the gods
who each in their turn
whisper a name of the Beloved into his ear

A friend whose eyes never shy
From the tears of the One
Who is our beginning
Ever flowing waters
That pour from his mouth
Into our hearts
Now alight with pure intent

–gnosticman (Gerald Porter, requiescat in pace, will be deeply missed)
