Cleave

It is night, and she is on her knees clawing and grasping forward.
She hears the night whispers and other victims’ whimpers.
The air is dark and damp filled with an odor of sweat and fear.
Focused and determined she makes her move closer and closer,
Refusing to move backwards or stand still in this forsaken place.

From time to time lightning strikes and for an instant everything is visible.
The revelation is welcomed and she pampers it in her psyche as long as she can, vigilantly awaiting the next strike…and there it goes! Seeing her sisters and brothers causes her reflexes to kick in. The lady runs toward the rendezvous point.

Her heart is comforted seeing their glows dashing their as well,
The lightning strikes just as they meet and aids them in their embrace.
Their arms are now locked and intertwined together,
As their hands rest upon the shoulders of their beloved sister or brother they notice the crisp air dancing with sweet-scented perfume.
Confidently, they stride in sync down a lighted pathway that cast the night away.

And like a man in the midst of wooing a woman takes her to the theater to embrace during “scary” parts – Our Lord can choose to allow certain things to transpire so we too will wrap our arms around his sturdy waist and cleave to Him. I can just imagine Jesus and our Heavenly Father winking at each other as His beloved bride clothed in her fragrant scents embrace, draw nearer and cleave.
