Icon Gold



God is reflected in the gold and God is reflected in everything.
The fogbank and the gold
Gold of heaven
Gold of Ophir
Gold of infinite space

Mists of presence
Light of memory
Shadows of infinite space

The paintbrush on the glaze
The gold leaf, the size
It doesn’t matter which
Between the gold and the paint there is no hitch

And so to reflect
In the water glass glaze
And the matt sheen gleam of gold

The forgetfulness reflexivity of gold
The infinite space and the true presence
How much longer will time rule my day and night
Show me a glimpse of that timeless place
Peace and rest.
