Musing A Breath

Easter Wednesday


Let the hearts that seek the Lord rejoice.
 Give thanks to the Lord, tell his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples.
 O sing to him, sing his praise;
       tell all his wonderful works!
                                      Psalm 104:1-4,

The finches are swagging the dawn
    with their butter-bright flying--
a sinewy multitude
    disturbing the sky.

While drinking coffee on the porch, 
    blurred a blush 
barely perceptible 
    in delicate lilting:
a long glance, 
   then gone 
like light gold leaves’ 
   wind-born design 
of an unseen eminence; 

or blazing wings 
   of nebulae falling; 
or God musing 
   a breath in eternity.
