St Teresa


Recommended Posts

Saint Teresa, God's falcon,
Could she see the blood
Of Jesus running 
With rivers and streams.
Praying for prayer itself
Teresa returned
From contemplation with
The interview of the soul
Of the world, viewed herself
On a crucifix hanging
From lightning, followed
Angels footprints on
Mirrors to reach her
Inner castle, mystical
Insight. The flight
Between God, Jesus,
Conflict between flesh
And the spirit, faith 
And doubt, which one
Is it closer to?-the empty
Cross that hangs between
Heaven and earth.

Powerful, human. Antiquity, spirituality, and earth science intermingle to culminate in the most provocative image of the poem (in existence, to wit): the empty cross. This is "the point," Barry.
