Bathe you in a
column of warm light
that enters the head and
moves to the soles of the feet
creating a lustrous essence
transfiguring mere humanity
into a vision of pure holiness.
This poem was inspired by a mediation on the following scripture:
Isaiah 60: 1-2
1 Arise, shine; for your light has come,
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
2 For darkness shall cover the earth,
and thick darkness the peoples;
but the Lord will arise upon you,
and his glory will appear over you.
