By Maria Egilsson —

In the stillness
Shadows sweep
Edged in
Filigree gold
As Grace
Calls us
To come
Out of the
Hiding places
That suffocate
The soul
To slip
From the confines
That imprison
And in the turning
Of moments
The Christ
Who rent the veil
Has come to
Ravish your heart 300w, 585w" sizes="(max-width: 150px) 100vw, 150px" />Maria Egilsson is a poet and artist at heart, loving to pen and paint about the redemptive love of Christ.  Maria was born in the northern part of England but now calls Manitoba, Canada home.
