The Spaces Are Endless

The Spaces Are Endless

.

This house

Has no walls

.

The spaces

Are endless

.

At the table

Of love

.

And the host

Is always attentive

.

Offering

The best

.

To every silent

Unexpected guest.

.

Andrei Rublev, “The Holy Trinity”

In Contemplation

In Contemplation

To wait

In the presence

.

Of God

For the consolation

.

Of the angels

Offered now

.

Through

Contemplation.

Andrei Rublev, “The Holy Trinity”

Who?

Who?

Who sits

At the table there?

.

Not the spectres

Of Scepticism

.

Or Loneliness

Or Despair

.

But the angels

Of grace

.

Whose being

Is mystery

.

Showing the presence

Of the Mystical Trinity.
