Al-Rahman Endless Love

If you could peel back
all the names of God,
get past the definitions
even slip by the ink and sound,
until a great silence fills you,
where time stops
where measurements become meaningless,
and then,
squeeze yourself past the idea of silence,
the idea you are still listening,
you might begin to feel into
a warm raying out,
an endless bubble,
a stream, rushing around your own skin,
from some ever-indescribable and infinite source--
the solar womb,
the first and always compassionate Amen.
