Stained Glass

We see his quiet gentle face
Unchanging throughout time
Transfixed today in colored space
Depicted in his prime 

And with a loving mournful gaze
From pensive eyes of white and blue
He gazes down on mankind’s maze
Through beautiful mosaicked hues

From the brilliance of the sun
That the polished sand reflects
Midst the prisms our pure one
Ne’er a little one rejects

From a constant fragile place
In our souls his rays do pass
From his red our sin erased
May our hearts be like stained glass

May our hearts be like stained glass indeed, See through and transparent as the delicate mixture of nature's very best, Let us give thanks for our eyes, for without them we could not see, thank you for sharing.
