Winged with Unknown Grace

The faces

of the angels

.

Reflect the goldenness

of space

.

The loving

of their looking

.

Is winged

with unknown grace.

The Circle

Outside

Of the circle

.

Much that seems

Of power

.

Or of

Significance

.

Is as futile

As sand

.

Blown haphazardly

By the wind.

Enter

from a sequence inspired by Andrei Rublev’s icon, “The Holy Trinity”, as explored by Henri Nouwen in “Behold the Beauty of the Lord”

.

Enter more deeply

The sacred mystery

.

The three

Become one

.

Father, Spirit

Son

.

The angels that come

To the chosen one

.

With identical faces

The gifts of their graces

.

Their wings light as air            

Now touching in prayer. 

.

From Fear to Love

.

From fear to love

We move

.

Entranced

On our journey

.

By that beauty

Of holiness

.

Communicated

By word

.

By life

And by art.

.

Live a Spiritual Life

Live a spiritual life

From the start

.

Praying

All times

.

Breathe

In God’s breath

.

From

The heart.

.

The Life of the World

The dark powers

Have invaded

.

The life

Of the world

.

Destruction and violence

Stalk every soul

.

And yet

We may choose

.

To make room

For good

.

And amongst

God’s breath

.

To make

Our spiritual home.

.

Icon of Peace

How can

We live

.

In this house

Of love

.

Surrounded

By a world of fear?

.

Enter

Silently

.

The icon

Of peace

.

And simply

Let your soul

.

Draw

Near.

.

Our True Home

Our true home

Is not here

.

In the house

Of hatred and fear

.

But in that fellowship

Of love

.

Where the mystical

Trinity resides.

.

The Essence

.

To live

In a world of fear

.

To live

In this world so near

.

With love

That is the essence

.

Of the spiritual

Life.

.

Perfect Love

Fear will assail

The soul

.

Yet perfect love

Will free

.

The world

From its control.

.

Andrei Rublev, “The Holy Trinity”
