..............................................................................................................................................

You need paint
To paint an icon,
But not just physical paint.

You need eyes
To see an icon,
But not just physical eyes.

An icon's spiritual potency
Is not apprehended physically;
It is apprehended spiritually
By invisible eyes
Which can see
Invisible colours
And which can listen
To inaudible tones
And which can feel
Non-tactual textures.

An icon is
An interdimensional portal;
A crossing point
Between dimensions;
A conduit for angels
Or for that
Which is angelic in character,
Angelic in origin,
Or angelic in destiny.

You don't pay
Close attention
To an icon;
An icon pays
Close attention
To you.

Watch out:
You are being watched.

Well, I do not really imagine it is likely to have effect.
