That Joy be Born

That joy be born
From unseen worlds
And senses form
For light ensouled

A light the eye
May only see
By seeing light
The light has made.

I’ve not forgotten,
Years ago
I traveled to this joy’s abode
A place where
light and joy are all.

I almost entered there,
But was
Returned to where the light
Is mixed
with dark.

Revealing darkness

Though we fall
to weeping and despair
Light pours from there to here.

Even in the darkest night
The Sun replenishes the Earth

Awakens us to boundless joy
Calls us to act in steadfast love.
