Visible and Invisible


The Lord sings,

and there’s a world.

The Spirit shimmers, and love

all inspires.

The Child touches one and then another,

and everything is better.

Healing and teaching,

death and resurrection.


There are other personages

in other stories.

I like well enough this tale of mine, which

comes from a people I must own.  I am

content mostly to do so.


I want to learn more and more:

to hear the single notes

that rise into a melody

of sacred time

for sacred dance.


And everything is better.
