in the bend holds Chalice of the gold,
granted from ancient seeded Fold.

bleeds the letting vein ’til crashes.
Only the soul may keep this Dove…
a testament, all – to God above.

Oh alone

seed home, Lord home.
Hand to open in Love’s joy now known.

Sweet Love’s Child in the breaking sown.
I am, I…
