Reflection

Windows into the symbolism here: It's a tree, growing on a cliff, a precarious place. A tree was were the greatest tragedy took place (the cross) which turned into the most beautiful reality (the resurrection). The darkness looks consuming, but doesn't overtake the Light. (El Salvador, 2014)

I wrote this poem with my eyes set on the eternal perspective. How often, with a narrow view, I might be overcome by fear of tragedies or failure and the unknown future. But when I go with my Lord up high to see the view from His perspective I finally see the silliness of fears in light of His eternal plan. He destroyed him who held the power of death and freed those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death (Hebrews 2:14-15). I'm no longer held in slavery by fear of death because I've been given eternal life. Even tragedies and failures are swallowed up, transformed, and undone for us whose "lives are now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ appears you also will appear with Him in glory" (Colossians 3:3-4). The ultimate tragedy happened in the past as the Son of God was brutally killed. But it was the tragedy that reversed and now redeems all tragedies entrusted to the beauty creating God.

The day when hope

flies a dance in wind.

Crash never occurs,

not even as a thought or idea.

Crash occurred in the past

and was crossed at two beams

holding flesh crushed.

That crash,

the finale of hopelessness

And the beginning of the flight.

The flight authored by what’s been

brought up

from the crushed-crashed state

to reinstate

the LIFE.

No longer wait,

No longer hate,

No longer dissipate

when flight is offered

and sustained

by the Crashed

Who reversed the line

and destroyed shame

and nothing’s the same

since the crashed empty flesh came

from the crash of wrath

and came

in just-ness

and became

justice.

Combined flesh and Perfection

proved Divinity at the resurrection.
