Bossey, Switzerland

Radiant Light

Its gleaming touch ignites heart’s delight

Dancing on wind-kissed limbs, finding rest on forest’s amber bed

Penetrating soft, supple leaves, its brilliant pattern spreads

Rays of topaz, streams of gold

I burst within unable to contain all my eyes behold

But I am transfixed, stilled, awed

Paralyzed – happily, I have seen God.
