light-sifter

to let light rise from Word to world,
she’s slipped in early, Jesus’ girl,

construction paper improvised
to heighten light let in from sky,

a hundred candles praying One,
our breath caught sudden coming in,

and all of us are ten again,
when Pentecost its lightning sends.

________

On the celebration of the coming of the Holy Spirit
at Pentecost, at St. Peter’s Church (Perkinsville, NY), 2013.
