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
overwhelms me.

Brief day fails,
fills the sky
with starry sails

wandering planets,
cold and bright –

holy spirit
of faithful night.

(2012: 2017)
