Veils

Filed under: poetry — denisedayspencer @ 8:40 pm

They sit alone,

in silver silence gleaming

through the thin, white shroud

that covers them with gentle folds.

Within them wait the wafers and the wine,

a symbol lingering through the years

to make a memory come alive.

He lay alone,

in shadowed silence resting

‘neath the thick, pale wrap

that bound Him up, His body dead.

But then within, the man began to stir,

returning through the door of death

to prove the power of our God.

I stand alone,

in spellbound silence wondering

at the thin, dim veil

that keeps Him from my seeking eyes.

Beyond, with arms outstretched, He beckons me

to rise above this wordly wall

and let my soul commune with His.

  2. Denise,
    what a wonderful expression. Truly stirring…the art of words and poetry is such an incredible vehicle for God’s Good dream (his Kingdom). Thanks for sharing it.
    Anyhow…my name is Brittian Bullock (to introduce myself) and I blog over at http://www.sensualjesus.wordpress.com and work for theOoze.com. Anyhow…I ran across your stuff and liked what I saw (especially the NO CELL PHONE policy!!! How cool–I wish I had the guts to ditch mine).

    Thanks again, nice to meet you.
