Sacrifice & Mountain Tops
Joris John Heise
One mountain means Abraham knifing Isaac.
And Tabor exhibits a Christ resplendent,
Both events evolved of foggy faith
Becoming a sharper view of Son-ship
Like, when cloud-clutter fades, sun shines.
Commitment comes as damn-the-cost—a find
Of Fatherhood value, providing a priceless peace
That all epochs and every family love
Fuses into one belovèd rose whose bloom
Is quite a surprise inside our soul.
Creation of the worth-grasp appears as true
Beyond the tears of spent, confused pursuit
Past ever lessening though truthful cognizance--
Toward awaring wide-awakeness, toward depth
And goodness—All are guides to go.
Beyond each mind, correction comes of the way,
In courage, towards calm, huge decisions
That face the too-smug warp we’ve made of the past
With present presence of yielding mere thing-objccts
And walking forward where we’d rather not.
