to deepen the mystery

The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery – Francis Bacon

On the hunt,
knowingly awake,
to deepen the mystery,
with every breath I take.

And in the morning,
upon waking,
my closed-eyes look,
my hands gently shaking,
my heart already shook,
so that when
the chase begins,
its with a clean slate,
forgiving any
and all spiritual sins.
And then I am
left to choose
am I love or am I hate.

And as my imagination
projects upon the screen
of time and space,
I choose to live
in the sacred reality
of a divinely glorious grace.
