Thoroughly Alive

We must hunger after the beautiful and the good...


Bright One

Bless You, o Bright One

Beloved Brilliance,

From whose beauty every good falls

As a shard; refracted luminescence

From the burning, diamond Heart

Whose beam calls all things into being.

May your splintered splendor lodge

In me, a seedling radiance

Deep-rooting in my darkness, let

Each fragment of your beauty grow

And grasp toward its parent light,

And rising, may it reunite me

With the uncreated Light.
