!Hallelujah!

 

I wonder,

wide-eyed

As a no-older-than-seven-days-creation-newborn

Foolishly,  

what would all of history look like from the viewpoint of God,

The Everlasting one?

 

A single word tiptoes the line

Between my flesh and spirit,

Like a gymnast.

 

This word dances, a tribal dance

Around the fire

With Faces and Shadows

Battling

The same way rays of sun creep

Through crying clouds

 

Every life,every moment

Knit  together

Woven colors unconsciously contrast

Warming the fragile bones of those who were,

Are,

And are to come.

 

Whispers move  in slowly

Becoming the unorchestrated hymn

Of all those who sang to the rhythm of  heart

Without notice, noting

One by one

Piece by piece

The most expansive,

Well timed & electric

 

!Hallelujah!

!Hallelujah!

!Hallelujah!
