Life's Arrival in Time and Space

Looking, see … the sun’s arc
over earth … the Spring’s
equinox … day’s time in
balance with … night’s time and
sun standing … still between
night darkness … and day’s light!
Passover … when the Light
Creation … washes life
over death … Lamb’s life
sacrificed … and freedom
escaping … to Eden
God’s shalom … forever.
Pre-empting … the northern
Spring solstice … Incarnate
Yahweh comes … earth tilting
toward life … while sun’s rays
life-giving … with water
sun warming … and waiting
to plant in … fertile ground
a sacred … seed of life

Reflection on the image:
We contemplate the Incarnation of Christ at a time when the earth itself is coming to fruition. Mary, the young girl of Galilee, holds a spool of thread which is used to weave the veil for the Holy of Holies in the temple. In this icon, it indicates the tying together of God and the creation, of the new creation for mankind which is to meet God incarnate. The gold aura of the icon tells us the age of salvation has come when we can go to the mother and meet the author of Creation, her Son. In God's plan, time and eternity meet in his Son, Jesus, the son of Mary.
