Cup of Life Divine

Oh grail, cup of life divine
How long they sought
the distant spaces
of those earthly places
for just one touch of thee
and yet within the striving
and the finding and the letting go
something sweet and gentle
composed of utter beauty
seemed lost within their time
and then an emptiness
began to fill the many
silent spaces in between
as the world of man alone
intruded yet again into
this utter mystery of love sublime

Anger raged then, like a towering storm
and they felt lost within its power
almost mad and quite insane
yet knowing they must temper this
if ever they would find a new beginning
shining out in endings of just this
the greatest quest reborn

Alone again, he sees Her form
She who held the chalice to his lips
Goddess of all life divine to him
and yet familiar too, as he dares to delve
once more into Her awesome image
of emotions beyond understanding
come to know themselves in him
but only through her cup of life divine...
