(I wrote this poem while reading Augustine’s ‘Confessions’ – it is part reflection on his writings, part response to how I felt God move in me while reading the text. ‘Confessions’ is well worth the read if you are so inclined.)
Conceived by You
That I might conceive of You.
Born of You
That I might be borne by You.
Enlivened, so that my living might be lively;
Enraptured, my heart ruptured to overflow.
My sight returned, that You might be sought
My soul enlightened to bear Light;
Alive, to declare Death dead!
