Oh speak to me of driving rain
Downpours drenching us to the bone
Your voice ricocheting off the pavement in fervent drops
Rolling off the edge into the torrent
Oh speak to me of tender valences
Dancing like fireflies
Throbbing their signals to form this world
Drawing closer, ever near
Oh speak to me of delicate unfurlings
Fiddleheads playing tantric melodies
Crescendos calling our names
Singing Hallelujahs of photosynthetic choirs
Oh speak to me of sacred cathedrals
The walls darkened with the soot of a thousand candles
The curling, pungent smoke swung back and forth
The breath of countless whispered prayers
The world turns on your tongue
In our devotions
