by Stephen Paul Wren

An iris
lets in light.
Ripples reach 
optic gates.
shape snapshots.
Sight pleases
and suggests.

The Lord’s light
floods a soul.
It absorbs
a portion.
An iris 
lets Him in.
The portion
brings true life.

Dr Stephen Paul Wren was educated at Cambridge and worked as an industrial chemist before transitioning back into academia at Oxford. He joined Kingston University in September 2018 where he works as a Senior lecturer. Stephen’s poetry can be read here.
