(Concentric Exigency...)


The limitary eye

Can insensibly see,

And, limitable bod

Can't ever become nor be

Has to be relumed

By Innocent Glow,

Sustained by unassailable

Oceanic Grace of Thee...

To justly and lucently see.


Can unbroken pleas 

Verily worship Thee?

Glorify fittingly

By proclaiming

Unswervingly Thee?

Adhering devotedly

To undying Decree -

Be honoring Thee?

Cultivating obedience

Be venerating Thee?


Untiring obedience

Is not motion splendorous?

While, the right intent

Your untouchable demand?

Your Might pityingly

Crossing to lowly me

And me striving along

The magnificent

Pathway with Thee.


The sacrosanctity crown -

Most pleasing, consoling Thee

Gained on austerities,

Abstinent, ascetic posture

And fervidly fasting

So the soul can lavishly feed...

Your will unfailing, inexhaustible

Provides the only fill satiable.


Can fervent striver

For fullness of Truth

Rejoice in works of eternity,

Be illimitably fruitful

With no constancy of purgation,

The garland of self-sacrifice

And armory of self-mortification?

Celebrating knightliness supreme

With no surrender extreme,

Supplying Grace resplendent, replete,

Vindication and fulfillment complete?

And, relying on the Morning Star -

The Ivory Tower,

Rendering pure Maternal aid

Through unrelenting

Intercessory power?


Is my eye rigorous

On foundational,

Ontological, Life-giving

Dependence on Thee?

Mindful of the All-seeing

Ever Watchful Eye over me?

And, can meritorious gifts

Be offered to Thee

To be repaid by Thee?


The patient...

"Life-blood" sighs of Thee

My wrestling violently

To be innocuously restored

As a dove free...

Aching -

For unblemished heart

Formed by Thee...

Dear Dr. Kardas, Thank you for sharing the vital components of holiness in another great masterwork! Indeed, with full cooperation with God's graces, turning to our Holy Mother for help and prayers, self-sacrifice, fasting and ascetic lifestyle all evil can be conquered no doubt! Philosophically formed ideas and brilliantly penned. God bless you... your friend in Christ.

When people no longer worship their Creator and Savior with reverence and love... when worshipping and loving God does not take top precedence, their objectives and goals can't ever make true progress or improve anything. The entire poem is fraught with powerful and eternal meaning, and as always is skillfully presented. Dr. you are a deep and noble thinker. My most favorite idea is "patient, life-blood sighs of Thee."
Thanks for shaking my soul...

Poetic masterpiece full of substance - timelessly essential notions that nourish our souls and awaken our spirits. Indeed, praying and living a good life is not enough... self-sacrifices and other holy practices are necessary for closer connection to God and helping others in their spiritual quests. God bless...
