The Pilgrimage, Book II: Part 28 / Phillip Neal Tippin

I rejoice to participate,
Even in this brief repeat,
Father in the moment of
Generation to generation.

Immortality is the key
To surviving apparent mortality.

Born blind before the black wall of time,
Strain poor guides for to walk a straight line
Since time is as night before these lidded eyes.
  Isaiah 42:16

Go dunk in Love’s life,
Dip into the wedding rings of water and rise,
Pulled from His Side, dripping.

The terms of peace
And cost of war
Could seem
The same.
   Luke 14:31-33
