god touched my forehead today
a warm balm on my third eye
sending laughing honey waves of loving healing delight
wrapping around my soul.
god is love delight laughter joy
innocence that comes after knowledge
my guardian is so adult
and unmistakably male.
his broad smooth shoulders
and wide palms
bring me calm comfort strength surety.
we are together humbled with tears of amazement
when god’s childlikebuddhachrist love
melted over us like heated butterscotch,
like sunlight made liquid,
peace and healing.
