New Light

From Ann Glover O’Dell’s Midwifing the Soul:

In derision

critics named Monet

and others for

their daring to be


painting alfresco

reveling in natural light


and now the name


with renown

is never

a pejorative.

And should we too

who gladly took the holy name

and breathe the air

defy the skeptics

daring to display

for all the world to see

the artist’s stamp

revealed as golden light

shining through

our eyes’ new panes of glass?

One thought on “New Light”

  1. The eyes are the windows of our soul. Thank you for sharing this beautiful poem. Without our eyes, we wouldn’t be able to see the beautiful things around us that God had created for us to enjoy. Have a great week, God bless you, and Merry Christmas 🎄🎁
