They came in faith,
as people do,
in answer to the call.
Approached the holy place
where no-thing dwells in silence.
Love’s altar
where all is consumed
and no-thing left
- no ashes or desires -
but sacred space
where God is All.

What, then, must I bring
to offer in sacrifice?
The precious gift of life
to lay on Love’s altar.

And in that offering
a sword will pierce through
to where the heart’s blood flows
that fire and blood co-mingle
as life pours out
in freely offered love.
