The Eyes of Your Heart
Piercing the Monstrance veil,
Gazing at me
Focusing green eyes upon the
White Sacred Species:
Seeing me across time and eternity,
Spotting me beyond the seated masses,
Savoring your word,
Devouring your bread, broken and shared.
Peering through the lens of love at
Me kneeling before
Really, truly present
Body, blood, soul, divinity
Held aloft by Father’s steady hands.
Me, hidden within the crowd,
Elevated by your grace, for mercy.
Eagle Eye precision
Laser-sliced me from cancerous flesh
By your glance in my direction.
But I knew…
Searching for me,
Lured my green eyes to rest
Upon your Beautiful Face
Illuminated by the Monstrance
