Christian Contemplation.

An Irish poet now living in Derry City but originally from Limavady in County Derry in the north of the Island.

(With thanks to JS.)

Is an awareness
Of the love of God,
A love coming to us
As a human love in Jesus.

The word comes from the
Word ‘temple’- the latter
Being a place where one can
Stand in the middle and observe
All at once.

Thus, Christian Contemplation is
A gaze of faith, fixed upon Jesus.
