Carmel: Garden, Mountain

At the heart of Carmel
    is both garden and mountain.

Filled from the Fountain,
   consummately gentle –
Waiting in the garden...
   waiting... 
      waiting...
Being steeped in Dew, to burst 
   in a moment 
   Torrential, 
   to scale the Mount Who is Love.
Isn't that the way of the Heart?
In part, parched because of the work
 
   consuming.
And then, ever more thoroughly, His
Hidden thirst draws us to drink
His Draught manifest,
Ebbing and flowing,
Here and there,
Rooted in Him Who is our Rest,

Renewing Fire, Zeal, Stream –
Blooming 
   at the crest.
