Looking Back is When we see Resurrection


Joris John Heise

Looking back in life we see a Hall of Mirrors
And in our mind-mirrors see ghosts of God;
It’s only through such thoughts and through
Desire that we see the shapes of Fishermen,
And future death, and how dumbly did we fail
In proffered experiences of ecstasy.

The awe of love looms, though, in the time-shaped path
We take to walk through daily tasks toward true Glory—
Beyond a naked, numb and eyes-cast-down passage
Past blank walls, no backward glance—to grow aware
This hall of mirrors leads to execution for courage
By way of preaching unbelievables.
