FAITH LIGHTS THE DARKNESS
Doubt wraps me in a fabric of uncoated leaves
on this near treacherous waning eve
as orchids rest beneath viscous cloudbursts:
I feel distanced from the elements of earth
while stars blink dimly these hands cannot reach...
O forbearance come for me ;
be the thread binding me until
wind- washed air cuddles my arms
through mist of an incandescent dew,
if only to taste that resurrected light
in glum hours-- cycle after cycle--
and await my son's homecoming from battle's filth;
when this unbearable darkness gives way
to pulses of one victorious trail …
Then morning, shimmer against my feeble breath
allowing a godly intervention of dawn, miraculous.

Inspiration from John 12: 36
' Believe in the light while you have the light,
so that you may become children of the light.'
