Ikon

She holds him to the world

A mirror which reflects

.

Our hopes of divinity

in the eyes of a child

.

A shield which displays

the genesis of humankind

.

She holds him to the world

and looks away.

Advent Journey

I journeyed through the dark streets

through many days of advent 

And arrived at a place

of still greater darkness 

And in the darkness there came a vision

It was not the brightness of Christmas lights

 

Or the glory of angels

But the communication of God

 

Pregnant with meaning

wrapped in a newborn babe. 

 

Ikons 1 & 2

Ikon (2)

 

The son

of a virgin

 

Posthumously

crowned

 

Must journey on

defenceless

 

And

be slain

 

Only then,

majestically rising,

 

Will his kingdom

come.
