Topic #42--"Poetry" Entry

From Tricia!:

16 x 20 canvas
The first in a series of six I hope to create and put in our downstairs hallway.
I may still go back and stamp words into the canvas. I kept going back and forth with that so I decided to hang it up and live with it as is for a while.

“The Window of My Soul”
The window of my soul opens, and from the purity of the unseen world,
the book of God comes to me straight.
The book, the rain of divine grace, and the light
are falling into my house through a window
from my real and original source.
The house without a window is hell;
to make a window is the essence of true religion.
Don't thrust your ax upon every thicket;
come, use your ax to cut open a window.
