On Holding a Russian Icon

Trinity_tikhon_filatiev

Touching this icon
flesh dissolves
and our true containment
contains us.
What was great to us before
now shrinks
and the small and disregarded seed,
the secret and abiding
meaning of our lives,
expands.
With God’s all-seeing eye
we see
and seeing
know.
In His hands
we rest
and in His heart
are blessed.
