In Blessed Calm
by Ingrid Showalter Swift

In blessed calm I rest
pink and pale and soft and light
The sun rises and I break open... smile at it
...a seed bursting to life
I stretch my roots out beneath the surface spread wide 
and long and strong

Lay my head down on a downy sea of grasses 
and listen to the soft and gentle sweepings 
of  blond and willowy in the breeze

The sand beneath me is so warm 
it fills my very being with safety
calm so calm... am I 
because of you
safe so safe... am I 
because of you
and the wind and willows are dancing together 
below the dark blue sky
animals titter and weep with the joy of it
trees grow faster... taller... prouder  
and it matters not what was or will be
for I am found 
and found and found again
I open my arms... as you do 
to the sky
and call out 
with the sea gulls to the wind

I love you, I love you, I love you

and all of the universe rejoices... 
angels hear and bow and blush
the seraphim sweep and dip about us, sparkling 
in dazzled golden light
and God himself dressed in pale pink resides 
upon his thrown
"all things lost and all things found"
