For Love Alone

Occupy my whole life with the one thought and the one desire of love, that I may love not for the sake of merit, not for the sake of perfection, not for the sake of virtue, not for the sake of sanctity but for love alone.   

Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation.

radiant vision
brilliant interlude
raging clouds sundered, 
sun-split storm;
soft rain falls
through winter-bare trees,
through fields of
feral flowers,
God’s world
set afire
for love alone
