Secret in Love Song

Recognizing the beauty of a flower
or joy in the face of a baby
is not by degree
or pitch of exclamation
but by a sacred respect
only hinted at by glint of eye
or the smile held close in its brilliance
more a secret in the love song to God.

Fireworks express full freedom
when truth is of the heart--
for toll of ocean waves
crash long on shores
inhabited or not.

With the whack of a racket ball
catching the morning train
or love-making ecstasy--
each prayer is heard
by breath of heart
