a benediction

We

who gather
one by one, into some and many, driven and afraid, to be and build, sustained by promises we learn to make

We

who tremble
undoing word by word, step by step, world by world, all that keeps us impossible

We

who gather
astounded by who we discover ourselves to be

We

who remember
spilling libations for the many thousands gone

We

who gather
fragments from barely there winds, snatches of song-making, truth-telling, love-sharing, building with wisps and filaments

We

who pursue
freedom dreams

We gather

  1. I really enjoyed reading this. I especially loved this line “We

    So beautiful
