Pentecost awakening…

What wakes me now with a roar

like the distant sound of 

a waterfall throwing itself

onto the rocks below,

tracing rainbows in the air?


what power is this

bursting through the atmosphere

with a pulse like 

excitement, electric

with light, like a heavenly dance floor

in the sky?


what presence is this,

as tongues of flame dance

around us, and none is burned,

but all are filled with joy that spills

in torrents from our mouths,

a river unstoppable?
