The Divine Tease

You exist somewhere between heaven and earth
You play with us between death and birth
You are, but then you also are not
Everything I've asked for, and everything I've got

You are the ball of dreams, the chalice of hope
You are the fabric of strength that helps us cope
You are the magic of possibility strewn around
Disguised as brown dust on the ground

You are the matter of wood, of leaves, of flowers
You are a rainbow grid of colourful powers
You are a spark that sets this world on fire
This world sandwiched by fear and desire

You are the raw potential of life and love
You are the silent peace we see in a dove
You exist but unless we embody you here
We are left just holding your vision so dear
