In the Time of the Morning Star

“Moreover, we possess the prophetic message that is altogether reliable.  You will do well to be attentive to it, as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”  2 Peter 1:19 NAB

 

 

IN THE TIME OF THE MORNING STAR

 
In the cosmos of the heart
the love of many
has grown cold
battered by
the dislodging
of those fixed
points of reference
the stars
free-falling
from their pedestals
sowing
seeds of distrust
giving rise to
weeds
of choking chaos
obscuring the mystery
and fragility
of orbiting souls
close enough
to touch
close enough
to wound

Responding
the Heavens send forth
into the vast emptiness
of pain and
disillusionment
an incorruptible beacon
the Morning Star
veiled
in the body of a Woman
speaking warming words
of tenderness
and solace
offering
roses
to nullify the weeds
and imparting a blueprint
for the forging
of links of chain
to be presented
to the Angel
for the binding
and neutralizing
of infecting darkness.

And all the while
the Morning Star
beckons each gaze
towards the Sun
dawning
glorious enough
to initiate
a new creation
a Jeweled City
dazzling in facets
of shimmering colours
aching
in anticipation
of being implanted
in hearts open
to the possibility
of leaving behind
the crushing
dizzying vortex
and living
united
in an expanding universe
infinitely redeemed
by Light
