Fire frames the heavens,
inscribing “Glory!” in the sky. You,
in an eternal instant illumine earth and
we see grace lurking in corners, and
peace hiding in the alleyways, and
hope about to spring on us
from behind its hunting blind;
courage stalking us from its perch.
All is clear for this
luminous moment, and then,
again, sweet darkness.
We fall into that
even light with love.
