My Perfect Soul

My Perfect Soul


A blanket of sparkles, my perfect soul
cloud and light and shimmering flawless
above. My spirit companion, my sister,
or wife, is my Eve, my lover of light.

My perfect soul reveals all I see,
all that I am and what forever shall be.
Although at first, I’d hoped to touch her
for years each night with wont to hold her
 but—
this is not the true path, not the real life.
God’s ways are different from mine.

My perfect soul is my freshet of life, all
joy and dream and faithful merriment. And
sometimes my blanket of sparkles enraptures,
in sheer living light my companion clothes me.
Then my sister, or wife, my true love returns.
Suffuse with white I may do no wrong
for my soul is the daughter of God.
