Poem: “Light from Light”


Light from Light

The ruby throat in air defers,
Presents his forehead to larkspur,
Walks as Christ on Galilee,
Weightless goes as so did He

Receives the pollen as a grace,
A Eucharist on beak and face,
Floating sign and metaphor,
Convey to us: receive, adore

Blood of wine, flesh of wheat,
Wing of angel swiftly beat,
To the left and to the right,
Above the altar, light from light
