OASIS BAPTISM (1)
She calls us toward renewal of our personal ‘I Am’ –
Before I think, my body moves to the altar.
Wash Away the Past –
She pours cleansing water to bathe my hands;
dries them, holds them in soft cloth.
Walk Along the Path –
She aligns me to silver carpet sprinkled with water;
urges me to walk toward unknown depths of fulfillment.
Quench Your Thirst -
She offers clear water in transparent glass:
I drink fully, and again - all that is poured.
Soul quivering, body tingling, spirit refreshed:
All that I Am - transported.
I am baptized to The One.
OASIS BAPTISM (2)
I float on mystical Ocean – palms open to the sky, trusting.
Soft currents sway my being in loving embrace.
Gentle waves – from temple to toes – undulate my being;
wash away an old word of limiting pain (reluctance).
I merge with Ocean – cool brine; taste of warm tears.
Gracious currents caress deeper self.
Loving waves - from toes to temple – flood my open heart;
reveal a new sound of infinite joy (acceptance).
I am released. I am with The One.
