Cluster of Light

artwork and text by Jamie Treadwell

My friends in Lebanon and Syria
Witness to a strengthening light

In a time when many are forced to flee
Others choose to stay
Gathering in communities of light
 to serve, to witness, to love

Lebanese pines cluster in a magical landscape
Their lifted limbs create a dancing canopy
 a shelter and haven
Together they create a brightness
Standing firm in deep rooted faith
Drawing strength from generations of faithfulness
 their unfathomable joy plants seeds for tomorrow

The image ‘Cluster of Light’ is available as an original oil painting
and limited edition print
