Towards Wind-Words


Gloucester Daily Times

---- — Religious out-fits,

“as broad and deep as the sea?”

(Hah!)God laughs.

Deposit of faith,

described in solid words-

a graveyard stone

Solid words,

enclosed stones,

spirit leaps beyond

Wind-like spirit,

beyond swayed grass,

fog around stones

Beyond graveyards,

sea-like, but beyond

even misty words

And, of course, any stones

Amen. Hallelujah.
