Echoes of Faith

Echoes of Faith

A Poem by Don Lund

 Echoes of Faith

 

Seemingly endless silence is gently broken by footfalls on the ancient stone floors.

 

They move through individual devotion and yet, they gather again in unified purpose.

 

Emulating the life of their fallen savior, earthly possessions no longer hold any meaning.

 

A new day’s light brings these followers one moment closer to the promised salvation.

 

Another faith filled reading from half-torn pages provide the fuel of their continued hope.

 

Discipline and care for others beyond the brick walls of solitude, they work and study.

 

Words are learned from velvet covered texts, and wine is made with great expertise.

 

The candlelight reflects a burning dedication and the ultimate quest for deliverance.

 

Daylight surrenders to the night in the hallowed halls and they pose for their prayers.

 

The stunning light of a full moon offers a reminder of the Lord’s infinite wonders.

 

Their peaceful cycle begins anew.

You make monasticism seem very desirable, and yet there are indications in the poem that such peace comes at a heavy price: the life of the intellect and the appreciation for simply living.
