birthed7We receive
In a Light,
Stirred to its depths
In glimpses, besetting,
The days of life:
All of Heaven
Reverberates with
The stunning shiver
Of celestial praise
That passes into us
Through these pangs
Of instant dissolution,
That are as
Closely synchronous
As flash and peal:
Swift and simple,
As the consuming fire,
Yet whispering unto us
In intricate patterns of
Symbol and expression,
That we have moved
From the shall be,
Into the is; where life
Finds its meaning.
