Celestial Dance

“…there is in all the things of earth a hidden glory waiting to be revealed, more radiant than a million suns…”

– David Bentley Hart, The Doors of the Sea

 

When you peer into the night

and look upon those ancient lights

that have spanned the void

for untold ages to pour into your eyes,

some having bridged billions of years

since that primordial bang, remember –

you too are a portal to another universe;

fear no darkness, nor chaos, nor crushing cold,

this is the mysterious space

where soon countless suns shall shine.

 

You are the nexus between unnumbered worlds within

and the bright myriads of worlds without,

remember – so are all your friends

and so are all your enemies,

and every tender word explodes like a quasar

that warms the perplexing vacancy

between one soul and the next.

 

So turns these cosmic constellations

around the One from whom we all proceed;

whose song is this celestial dance of light and life,

enfolding every distance, every difference

within an everlasting embrace,

dispelling every discordant darkness

into a deeper, brighter melody

while hymning our inexorable return

to the Word that is sung in every star.

One thought on “Celestial Dance

  1. Hey Jed,

    ( I almost started singing, “Hey Jude”)

    Love to depth of thought and starlight. Yes, all isxas glorious and wonderful when its source is God the Creator. What great mysteries await for the “star children” of Gid.

    Amen.
