Sacred Softening

Sacred Softening

My body knows
has always known
my way back to God.

I dance
moving in slow sensual swirls
under the vastness of a moon-lit night

swaying until stillness fills every cell
and there are no hard edges
striving, panting, thinking

only breath
and heart.

Empty now,
I open into spaciousness

becoming the brilliant Night Jewel
boldly, gently shimmering her soft light.

And I discover that
I have always been
resting

shining

in God’s lap.

    How wonderful Lisa! Have you been dancing lately?
    I was just contemplating taking a zumba class this morning, and was feeling a little scared to go – but your poem inspired me. Not exactly ecstatic, divine dancing, but I’m sure it will tap into something good!
    Love you!
