“Eyes” – An Alphabyte

Alphabytes are object meditations
that move through the alphabet two times
in the course of the fifty-two weeks in the year.
“Eyes” introduces the Fifth Week in Pentecost.

Nick reads the Alphabyte.

Signs that say “DO NOT TOUCH” adorn the shops of delicate figures.
So let it be for the thoughts and things of the soul.
Look at, but do not touch—or much less handle or wrestle—
    those thoughts from darkness and death that thrash about from within
    seeking to have you grasp at them till they topple you and hold you
    to the ground, refusing to let go.
Give them—without touching them—to the Lord of all thoughts.

What about those thoughts that lead toward light and life?
Receive them, treasure them, hold them gently in open hands.
Watch the Spirit weave them into creations of delight before your very eyes.
Then, you will not have to touch them, for they will be one with your hands
    that touch others till they quiver with life.

How does the Word touch you?
