“Set me as a seal upon your heart,
    as a seal upon your arm;
for love is strong as death,
    passion fierce as the grave.
Its flashes are flashes of fire,
    a raging flame.”  Song of Solomon 8:6

touching death’s chilly waters
with your hope, you
warm them so we can
swim beside you toward
the far green shore of grace,
your love skimming
the tops of the waves
like fireflies lighting the way
