life: acoustic & amplified

poetry, quotes & thoughts about life

good stuff

  
Beloved,

you make the water of my life into wine,

my ordinary into your holy.
You request miracles of me

the moment before I know I’m ready.
What was for purification of uncleanness

you make into celebration of beauty.
You change my despair to gratitude

in secret, my dark certainty to wonder. 
You make this life into a wedding feast,

my faithful marriage to the Holy One. 
Always you turn piety into a party. 

And always the best is yet to come. 
This wine is not for discussion. 

It’s to drink. It’s good. It’s really good. 
Let’s dance.
