Whispered Monologue (Lectio Divina)

In the burning absence of intellectual sobriety,

.  this long burnt out intoxicating muse,

.  shows its weathered facade.

Tangled around triangular tears,

.  each drop speaks of

.           silent content marked for days to come.

Colour infused line follows line.

These textured engravings

.            warm each page

Worn edges tell tales of where hands once rested,

.                                  where heart, mind and soul found themselves arrested.

Whispering vapours voiced by a monologue,

.    slip between quill, wick and wall.

This dated matter sends hearts bowed soaring.

The sign of a thankful warrior kneeling before his calling.

Simul justus et peccator.[i]

.

Then to the Gentiles also God has granted repentance that leads to life[ii]

.


[i] Martin Luther: “…at the same time, justified and sinner.”

[ii] Acts 11:18, ESV
