Opening Every Way

June 5, 2011

Under the moon, like lunatics we rave
over the latest gadget, movie, band
that teases us with something that we crave
but never satisfies our deep demand.
Over the moon, the stars burn blindingly bright.
The universe is opening every way.
It stretches lifetimes farther than our sight
unaided – where unfallen angels play.
Beyond the quarantining of our world,
beyond this minefield’s straight and narrow path,
the galaxies are beautifully pearled,
and mansions are prepared on our behalf.
Oh, Lord, break in and set these prisioners free
to reach the joy that fills eternity.
