Today’s text

Mathew 25:13 

Keep awake therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour.

Ask why

Blinded by pretension
of sight, nothing is seen but
the surface sheen the arrogant
mind imagines is all
that is, when all that is
hides the One Love present
playing behind, beneath.
beyond and within all that is.

Blind eyes do not ask why
there is anything at all,
why life, or why this
crazy love, irresistible
magnetic, drawing the yearning
heart home as sun glow
illumines the art of autumn
leaves from far horizon,
earth’s star setting once more,
sweetest light of day, caressing
earth’s wonder, delighting
hearts one last time before
dieing in the purple night to
spring again from eastern shore,
light of tomorrow opening our
eyes to miracles, no
just one, to the Love
who makes us human, alive, free,
glowing within with light whose
Source no eye can see,
no mind can know.

Then, illumined and alive,
finally sighted and hope-filled, 
we know this is the day, this 
the hour of salvation; Eternal 
Love, who always is, welcomes
us again to know … and live
a life of knowing why,
why life, why this crazy
love yearning for home, why
the dieing light makes art 
of autumn afternoons

Pr. David L. Miller
