Thank You For The Light – – T S Eliot, ‘Choruses From The Rock’

leaves on the ground in my garden.. The Acer tree is a magnificant tree and never more so than in fall.

 

Christmas is just around the corner with only 9 days to go! The event of the year for people in Christian countries and a time for joy for those who look to a higher meaning than the usual “shop to you drop” attitude  that  has preceded  Christmas since the late 1950s. A small present for me was finding one of my favourite poems, “Anthem of light.”  Oddly enough after searching the Internet, I found it on my own blog, posted during November 2012.   Here too are some of my favourite photos from this year. Enjoy.

ANTHEM OF LIGHT

O Light Invisible, we praise Thee!

Too bright for mortal vision.

O Greater Light, we praise Thee for the less;

The eastern light our spires touch at morning,

The light that slants upon our western doors at evening,

The twilight over stagnant pools at batflight,

Moon light and star light, owl and moth light,

Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade.

O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!

We thank Thee for the light that we have kindled,

The light of altar and of sanctuary;

Small lights of those who meditate at midnight

And lights directed through the coloured panes of windows

And light reflected from the polished stone,

The gilded carven wood, the coloured fresco.

Our gaze is submarine, our eyes look upward

And see the light that fractures through unquiet water.

We see the light but see not whence it comes.

 

O Light Invisible, we glorify Thee!

    1. Have a happy Xmas too. I have a cataract on left eye, considerably worse now. So I don’t often post nor do I read on the computer. I hope to get it sorted by May 2018. Too long for me though. I am not enjoying having a blurry eye.. Thanks so much.

      1. My dad had cataracts and they just did a day surgery to replace the lens. He said it was like the difference between night and day. I hope it heals well and brings much more light back into your life Eve. Many blessings for your journey ❤
