“Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona” with “My Life” by Amaya Engleking

Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona. Flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father in heaven. Thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. ©Alfred Eaker, 2018 (reprinted with permission *) MY LIFE by Amaya Engleking In 1984 I had colic but through 1993 the years were idyllic, running with wolves and kissing Jesus on the cheek. Watching the stars dance for me outside my bedroom window. When we moved from the sunshine when I was ten my hair slowly turned dark, and soon … Continue reading “Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona” with “My Life” by Amaya Engleking

A 2017 tribute to John McCain in art: Christ, Our Mother heals the faithful Centurion’s pais

Christ, Our Mother heals the faithful Centurion’s pais. ©2017 Alfred Eaker. A tribute I paid to Sen. John McCain about a year ago, casting him as the Centurion in “the Gospel of Christ, Our Mother “ ( a series which cast Christ in the symbol of Julian of Norwich’s Christ, Our Mother ) although I didn’t always agree with him politically, McCain was the last of the Rockefeller Republicans – a moderate- who believed in reaching out and working with those of different ideologies and who refused to mantle a fundamentalist attitude of towing the party dogmatic line. In the … Continue reading A 2017 tribute to John McCain in art: Christ, Our Mother heals the faithful Centurion’s pais

SEA OF ROSARIES: OUR LADY OF THE WOODS

OUR LADY OF THE WOODS ©1994 ALFRED EAKER Winter’s Night (Thomas Merton) When, in the dark, the frost cracks on the window The children awaken, and whisper. One says the moonlight grated like a skate Across the freezing river. Another hears the starlight breaking like a knifeblade Upon the silent, steelbright pond. They say the trees are stiller than the frozen water From waiting for a shouting light, a heavenly message. Yet it is far from Christmas, when a star Sang in the pane, as brittle as their innocence! For now the light of early Lent Glitters upon the icy … Continue reading SEA OF ROSARIES: OUR LADY OF THE WOODS

SEA OF ROSARIES: Our Lady of Sorrows

“The Evening of the Visitation” (Thomas Merton) Go, roads, to the four quarters of our quiet distance,While you, full moon, wise queen,Begin your evening journey to the hills of heaven,And travel no less stately in the summer skyThan Mary, going to the house of Zachary. The woods are silent with the sleep of doves,The valleys with the sleep of streams,And all our barns are happy with peace of cattle gone to rest.Still wakeful, in the fields, the shocks of wheatPreach and say prayers:You sheaves, make all your evensongs as sweet as ours,Whose summer world, all ready for the granary and … Continue reading SEA OF ROSARIES: Our Lady of Sorrows

SEA OF ROSARIES: Our Lady of Cobre and the dance of the scared feminine

Our Lady Of Cobre and the dance of the sacred feminine ©2018 Alfred Eaker  Song for Our Lady of Cobre (Thomas Merton) The white girls lift their heads like trees, The black girls go Reflected like flamingoes in the street. The white girls sing as shrill as water, The black girls talk as quiet as clay. The white girls open their arms like clouds, The black girls close their eyes like wings: Angels bow down like bells, Angels look up like toys, Because the heavenly stars Stand in a ring: And all the pieces of the mosaic, earth, Get up and … Continue reading SEA OF ROSARIES: Our Lady of Cobre and the dance of the scared feminine
