Crossing Lines

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

The gaze is unafraid of crossing lines 

Imagination leaps ahead

Yearning sets one foot across,

restrained

by reason hanging on its heel,

reason, who draws all lines,

who wants to know before taking a risk,

reason, who secretly

hopes to

be convinced otherwise,

who dithers, delays, doubts,

who finally calls

on faith 

for direction

Faith, who is unchained by

fear or convention,

selfishness, pride or conceit

Faith who will choose 

what is true and honourable and pure

Reason trusts faith 

when it cannot obey yearning or hope or

imagination

So the gaze turns inwards,

becomes still, expectant and clear

in anticipation

 

 

 

(includes reference to Philippians 4:8)
