Shine {A Poem}

Induct me, Lord, into the fellowship of shining faces,

The kinship of the radiant, kintsugi saints

With your gold gleaming through the fractures of

Their souls. Shine Your bright righteousness on me.

Count me among the meek who gaze so long 

And earnestly at Jesus' glorious face

In ink and paper, pixels, glass, and light,

Who speak and listen to Your voice along

The steep and cobbled winding path of life

To such extent, Your Spirit kindles inner flame

Your light, not ours,

Absorbed, reflected back

From unveiled hearts, shines forth to watching world.

But first, we need to see. Open blind eyes.

Transfix us and transform us with Your grace.

In Jesus' name we seek Your face. Amen.
