A lamp (torch) am I to thee that beholdest me
A mirror am I to thee that perceivest me
A door am I to thee that knockest at me

Jesus said to Disciples

Apocryphal Acts of John

A Round Dance and a cross conceives time

Darkness begs for forgiveness

The torch, the mirror, the door

Await the mystai (initiate)

The quest has begun.

The spirit locked away

beckons the initiation.

The soul conspires against the tired façade

Are you a ghost waiting for resurrection?

A heretic lies beneath the wave of deceit

holding truth with her last breath.

Traverse the threshold

Take the burning flame in hand

Seek the eyes that reflect righteousness

follow the hidden path to the final door

For rapturous particles shall melt ignorance

Passion will flood barren hearts.

Flesh and bone shall carry us like

sailing ships bound for the horizon

Pass through winter’s long wicked reign

enter Mystery’s sacred door and

Gaze into the Mirror and enter the known.
