Artist's Description

The eyes illumine dark spaces
in between the covers of walls

speaking metaphors – emptiness
half-filled with obscure nostalgia,

disturbing silence of the night
with victorious prayerful knees

willing the self to understand
a lifetime of arduous lessons

of the perpetual holy cross
uniting suffering with Christ

before dawn – before more cock crows
when the light of another day

white stillness begins the pattern
of impassive forgetfulness

until the last orange descent -
the same eyes that open and close

illumine again dark spaces
refuse to sleep even in dreams

because the mystery of it
has yet to be gently unveiled

in the sacred magnum opus
of the one eternal artist

with a single poetic word
speaking through the calm of the storm.
