In a transitory moment
realized infinite identity
exalted, extinguished
in a rush of joy reborn
at the altar of the self
effaced, old, finished
stone upon stone built
with sacrifice, burden
pain, happily endured
love’s constant direction
plumbed depths reached
lyrical essence touched
bereft in transit though
an instant of bliss to hold.
