by Stephen Paul Wren
An iris lets in light. Ripples reach optic gates. Impulses 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.
