Mystical Night

Standard

“The mystical night is not mere night, absence of light. It is a night which is sanctified by the presence of an invisible light….” Thomas Merton, The New Man

From this holy mountain
rises good night
on the gentle wind
of shadowed bird flight.

How I long for darkness
to overtake
day’s tired sky,
my upturned face,

and Thou,
oh Night
of Joyful Flame!
with your dark love
set my soul ablaze!
