Flame of Faith

flame of faith
no embers does it create
it burns
yet it consumes not

flame of faith
the passion
the light
the grace

flame of faith
the pulsing heart
the longing soul
the birth eternal.

Flame of Faith, © Rose Marie Raccioppi, 2012.

"And all shall be well and.. All manner of thing shall be well.. When the tongues of flame are in-folded.. Into the crowned knot of fire.. And the fire and the rose are one.” ~ T.S. Eliot


  1. Oh my, YES!! Faith is glorious from every angle - every vantage point - every clenched fist and shout of joy - it is unyielding in its intent to give us the means to "hold on"
    Love Gail

  2. Gail, Thank You and may FAITH ever bless and serve you and yours. Happy 2012 to the family.
