Light, directly infused




“Faith reaches the intellect not through the senses
 but in a light directly infused by God.” Thomas Merton

Rising from the sea
 death’s veil
overcomes me.

Brief day fails,
fills the sky
with starry sails

wandering planets,
moonbeams
cold and bright –

holy spirit
of faithful night.
