Poem: Sea Of Ecstasy

By bhmcintosh | bhmcintosh | 14 May 2019

Oh, to fall into Love's all-encompassing embrace!


Sea Of Ecstasy

I swam in a sea of rich, luxurious care,
unbounded expanses, pristine and everywhere!

I dove down, deep, wrapped up in Love's belief,
and bathed in glorious, profoundly sweet relief!

Transparent depths reached up, and buoyed me like air,
obliterating fear and pain--none of that existed there!

I drew deep breaths of that surrounding peace,
exhaling all my worries, feeling joy in the release!

Acceptance took me in her arms and washed me inside out,
cleansed away all hint of shame, and every breed of doubt!

Oh, how joyously my soul exulted in that realm, so bright,
so rarified and filled with purified delight!

So floating there, in Love's grand, embracing sea,
I let go with all my heart, and dissolved myself in ecstasy!
