β€œIn the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness
and the shadow of death, 
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
(Gospel)

"Before Eternity"

Iris open
columbine bloom
violets appear

self disclosures
of
a second
with
personal history

a slow growing
and
unfolding
lost
in the presence

of a moment

Father of the fragile
Father of change
Father of the delicate

help us move in
fleeing dimension

to be dispossessed
is also to possess

it is enough to be

praised be

your delicacy

J. Janda
