and ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of the Father

Celebrating the ascended Christ, the reigning Christ, the interceding Christ, the returning Christ this Ascension Sunday.

Ascension of Christ
Salvador Dali

by Luci Shaw (The Secret Trees)
for the time
being / the dark earth
was enough
to substantiate you
in our vision

but the universal circle
claimed you / rid
of a finite foothold
you lifted / scattered
your feathers in light
faceted the
of thin air / time & space
after the light-ning
malted in one

blinded / our eyes
turn inward
as we find
your closer paraclete
our truer view

a sonnet for Ascension Day by Malcolm Guite:
