Reflection: A poem inspired by St. Francis

Reflection Saint Francis.jpg

In light and dark
Breathed into existence
Spirit bursting in colors
Bathing eyes that are opened

Which is more beautiful
You or your reflection
In all that You make

What would I abandon for this
Oh such gifts You give
To the abandoned
Receiving in poverty
Brother, sister, mother

I see in reflection 
Your upside down kingdom
Generously offered

So grateful
