"I will now allure her, and bring her into the wilderness, and speak tenderly to her." --Hosea 2:14

If you want....

If you want,
 the Virgin
 will come walking down the road
pregnant with The holy,
 and say,
"I need shelter for the night,
 take me inside your heart,
 my time is so close."
under the roof of your soul,
you will witness
 the sublime intimacy,
The Divine, 
The Christ,
 taking birth forever,
as she grasps your hand for help,
for each of us is 
the midwife of God, 
each of us.
Yes, there,
 under the dome of your being
does creation come 
into existence 
through your womb,
 dear pilgrim
 the sacred womb 
of your soul,
as God grasps 
our arms
 for help:
for each of us
 is His Beloved servant,
never far.
If you want,
 the Virgin
 will come walking down the street
pregnant with Light and sing.
St. John of the Cross
