Day 12: Where I’m From

where i’m from
you don’t shout
hallelujah at dawn
the sun is speaking

you don’t shout
it is in the turning
open palms, open
heart to the sky

hallelujah at dawn
this world-weary word
much mouthed and maligned
standing in for the unknown

the sun is speaking
older words, bright
beyond any history
unassailable, for all

it is in the turning
beyond any history
open palms, open
older word, bright

you need not shout
the sun speaks for all.

A Blessed Easter to all who celebrate this day the Risen Christ.
