Embrace of God by Peter Menkin
by Peter Menkin  
1/19/2009 / Poetry


"...(O)ur hearts are opened wide with a sweetness of love that is beyond words." RB

Today this Easter Wednesday something a little different. A poem posted twice, the same one. Each is a little different. The first is the newest version and incorporates a quotation from The Rule of Saint Benedict. The second version is not so much older than the first. It written just the day previous on Tuesday, another beautiful Spring day here in Northern California across the Golden Gate Bridge in the small city where I live. Note that in the second, the earlier of the two versions, there is a line about Christ and the Spirit
in the blood giving life. Not so in the first one.

Embrace of God (2)
by Peter Menkin

The heart yearns,

wishes for warmth, finds opening

to the Lord. "With tears and the attention

of heart..." this divine love sustains life. More.

In the secret of the self, within the psyche,


we yearn for knowledge with self recognition of existence,

Christ does feed us. More. The beyond

calls; mankind discovers something uniquely

greater than the mysteries that Intrigue senses and thoughts."


...(O)ur hearts are opened wide

with a sweetness of love

that is beyond words."


Easter reveals to us this greater than,

this renewal of the good, exploding with eternal might

there is love greater everlasting

gift unforgettable recognized with prayer. More.

With a knowledge of expanded eternity beyondthe measure of imagination--

the gasp of surrender.


Promise that tells us God

Embraces the spirit of mankind.




Embrace of God (1)

by Peter Menkin


The heart yearns,

wishes for warmth, finds opening

to the Lord. A deeper thing,

like the blood that courses through the body


this divine love sustains life. More.

In the secret of the self, within the psyche,

we yearn for knowledge: recognition of existence,

Christ does feed us. More. The beyondcalls;


mankind discovers something uniquely

greater than senses and thoughts.

Easter reveals to us this greater than,

this renewal of the good, exploding with eternal might.

There is love greater, everlasting.


Gift unforgettable recognized in prayer. More.

With apperception--

the gasp of surrender.

Promise that tells us God

embraces the spirit of mankind.
