    man alone stands
    in My image
    humility-
    weaponed, speaking
    tongues of angels
    holy, wholly
    bonded, chosen,
    compassion clad,
    kindness gentled,
    patience telling
    love - over all

    perfection found
    in forgiveness

    thankfulness sung
    for God alone
    the beginning
    the omega
    in Him all things
    even you...began

    Who is like God?
    Behold my hands,
    unblessed and whole:

    What wound's honour
    can cut a song
    through angelfire,
    or wreathe a brow
    unmired from seed?

    What can brother's
    armour-loving
    mightmongery
    know of the ray
    night made naked?

    Yeah Suz-zen - I'm pretty sure I used Grant's poem as a prompt this time - and the inner Spirit was poking pretty hard at me, so this appeared. Just now I carelessly broke a calendar frame, so I must have unsettled someone in the spiritual warfare realm. But I'm strapped in, ready to go, and Grant, thankfully, is an understanding soul and teacher.

    St. Michael

    I am he who
    has your number
    wreathed in righteous
    faith, armored in
    the All-mighty;
    battle bruised but
    never beaten
    side by side we'll
    brave your burning
    to life...or death

    Grant, Very pregnant with many meanings. Tight and expansive. Your clipped phrasing is a mighty weapon. I just watched a hackneyed and very bad horror movie in the middle of the night
    called The Remaining which was about The Rapture interrupting a wedding party. Your poem today was a welcome relief.

    Another deep write.

    For me, an examination of the price of independent will.

    I believe one must view the subject metaphorically, to truly appreciate the message.

    Many thanks for reading, Maestro. I don't want to over-explain the ending, but 'your time returns' here is suggestive of a lifespan, a moment of greatness, and the Great Recurrence of Nietzsche. 'We burn to life' simply inverts all routine associations of destructive fire, as in the expressions 'burned to death' and 'hellfire', and suggests instead a kind of necessary, vital energy.

    A delicious gem of a four-syllable examination of Lucifer, heaven's hacked gem.
    I am a little unsure of the ending, but it seems like some resurrection or reincarnation event.
    The devices of assonance and consonance are omnipresent in this piece as in much of your work, grant Sensei.
    This is vintage grantian fare, and a pure joy to read and re-read!
