A Place in the Picture

Once windblown sand without direction,
I am now glass, colored by life, faith, and love.
Sand heated, tinted, shaped, and planted,
Part of a larger picture.
Cracks and fissures healed and yet healing,
Whole glass within the framework,
Supported by Spirit,

Surrounded by glass like and unlike me.
Light shines to the world through me, through us,
A piece in the picture of the Bride,
Glass arranged just so to shine light and show the image,
Glass, waiting for the King’s return.
He waits to heat, shape, heal cracks,
And place you just right,
So His light and image can shine on another,
Windblown sand without direction.

But that’s when people started to find it easy to ward off the consequences of my embrace. Or so the people of the day took as gospel; many still do.
“I am harmless,” I preach. “I bring you only pleasure and never pain.” Because of their innate innocence and trust, and because of their desire, they believe me. Continue reading “A Letter from Licentia”
