Last week we gave you a look at Barb's presentation on the ripping of the Temple Veil, that she offered on Good Friday at Belen Christian Church.
Here's my interpretation, in sonnet form...I'm too ill to give any kind of reflection or analysis, so it is what it is. Giving myself permission to maybe not push so hard, and permission is the Five Minute Friday prompt this week.
Somewhat like the Temple Veil,
my fabric's torn in two,
and it's making my heart quail
that I am seeing through
from temporal to what's beyond,
from body into soul,
from Palm Sunday's happy fronds
to transcendent now made whole.
To take the cup was not my choice,
but willingly, I drink,
for without dying there's no voice;
no pain, no need to think
'bout glory of the paradigm shift
when the curtain of my life was ripped.
If you'd like to see Barbara delivering the presentation featured in last week's post, visit the Youtube video below. She begins after the pastor's introduction at about 27:24, but the whole sermon's good if you'd care to take the time for it. (Please click here if the video doesn't appear on your device.)
