Chisel

Born in darkness
chisel in hand
my soul craves
the yet unknown

I carve the stone
cut away the rock
piece by piece
sliver by sliver
dust of granite my shroud

as I chisel, light enters
momentary blindness
passes
my cave illuminated
darkness dispelled
anxiety allayed
loneliness lifted

I see You
Your glory, my lamp
Shekinah runway lights
lead me

so I chisel more
hungry for light
pushing limits
to open the way
to one day live
in Light

My eyes for beauty pine

By Robert Bridges (1844-1930)

My eyes for beauty pine,
My souls for Goddes grace;
No other care nor hope is mine;
To heaven I turn my face.

Once splendour thence is shed
From all the stars above:
‘Tis named when God’s name is said,
‘Tis Love, ‘tis heavenly Love.

And every gentle heart,
That burns with true desire,
Is lit from eyes that mirror part
Of that celestial fire.

By John Wright Follette (1883-1966)

I am a flame born of celestial fire
I bear a name, Insatiable Desire.
I wear in heart an image all divine,
Past human art, not traced by mortal line.
I hear God call to taste His heavenly power;
I give my all to burn life’s single hour.
So let me burn through fetters that would bind;
Thus will I learn and freedom will I find.
I shall return to Love’s eternal fire,
There shall I burn – a satisfied desire.
