Touching Spirit

Touching Spirit...
ageless God beyond our fallen dearth.
Beknownst to all,
your timeless call
gives rise to higher birth.

Whence hearts betray what souls perceive,
whence fallen men believe
in things unknown to fleshy sense,
no longer shall we cleave,
no longer bear the fearful grip
to that which binds us low.
But let the earthy chains then slip
from all which flesh can know.

Then splits the faithful seedling sown
in hearts of crumbling stone.
Then sees the heart without the eye,
past dying flesh and bone.
Beyond the mortal realm we trod,
through cosmic time and space
where shines the light of waiting God,
where lives His saving grace.

John 3:3

Spirited Writing
Jim,

You have a golden pen, there is something about your poetry that grabs me. This 8-6 line break cannot be the only magic that is grabbing me, proven by the exceptional first Stanza, although I am certainly going to see if I can learn from this.

Again, well crafted, very enjoyable read.

Ivor
