Reaching for the Heavens

~

 

Swimming through the air

I stroke the particles

Reaching for the heavens.

 

Erupting the celestial sphere

Gravity grows, weaker and weaker

I venture there, mother nature

Rising to meet her.

 

Colliding with the universe

Scattering those wild claims

Of the scientist’s research

Knowledge of worlds, mere names.

 

Choke then in the furnace

Of polluted earth’s surfaces

Images and appearances, signs

Symbols, meaning I cannot find.

 

Empirical data revolutions

Please not nature’s magnificent bosom

Creatures tallied in horrid schism

Decapitated prey of atheist wisdom.   

 

I travel upon the horizon

Without a mind of limitation

Going where only she can know

Intelligence grows.

 

Touching her void, faithful

Consciousness unbounded, in full

Being of grace, revelation

Now I have become real,

Eternally grateful.  

 

Laus Deo

Where is the Light?

A poem pondering the faith of our forefathers:

 

Where is the light?

Where is the light?

Did God come, not to frighten us

But to shine a torch on Life?

 

Where are our forefathers?

Where are our forefathers?

In our memories, are they awakened

Saving legacy of love and gratitude?

 

Where are we now?

Where is Life?

Did we strife, the good old fight

To aggressively cast away the Light?

I Journey on My Way

A poem meditating on the Pilgrim’s Progress:

 

Alone with God, none but thee

I journey on my way

Safely in thy hand, more safe

Than if a herd of bulls around me stand.

 

Thou are so near, what need I fear?

Night or day, the Father is here

Heavenly Kingdom is my salvation.

 

Wherever I speak, life is there

Whatever I say, he is sense

My lips bloom like cherries

Wisdom carries me on merrily.

 

Filling my lungs for everyone

Despair flees from those in need

Whose hearts in love rejoice, the living Christ.

 

Traversing mountains and valleys,

Long and wild, steep and wet

Mary, fair Virgin, light and upright

Hold me on this Pilgrim journey.
