Spirit of Truth

A new day dawns,

from time to time,

when sentient beings,

such as myself,

and you, curious reader,

experience moments

of such wondrous lucidity

that it seems we have moved

from a place of darkness

to one of light. The dawning

is mostly welcomed. For some,

those days arise more frequently

than they do for others;

the enlightenments may be serial,

and the truths will often compound.

John, the gospel-writer,

tells of the Advocate Spirit,

friend and companion

to men and women of faith,

who is promised to create

occasional recognitions of truth

filled with colour, light and beauty;

choreographing dancings for weary feet,

composing arias in ache-filled hearts

and leading the pilgrim soul

to places of grateful weeping.

Such illuminations may,

on occasions, so inspire the open-minded

that nations are led to cease their fighting,

nature begins to find healing,

people stop being quite so fearful,

and the hitherto vanquished power

of generous love receives its chance

and reclaims a small foothold.
