Take off your clothes
and sit nakedly
before the naked Presence of God.
Take off the clothes of self-blame,
the familiar habits of fear and shame.
Allow the fountain to erupt
from the deep core of your
Laugh in the sweet surge of it.
God laughs in you
as shadows whiff away
in this peace of pure fire;
this spill of Love’s river;
this clean breath of freedom.
Inspired by sayings of Jesus in the Gospel of Thomas.
