Definitions Of Shekinah

1920 1280 John Davis Jr

Infinity: A bird’s nest
like a wedding band, simple
as intertwined dreams holding
all our eggs, expectations.

 

Light

Glory beamed behind mountains,
in renaissance halo paint,
on Damascus roadway stones,
through burning bush and rainbows.

 

Breeze

Protection for watched sparrows,
tilted hammocks, blossomed sails,
taut-stringed kites, and grandmother’s
bed sheets billowing, drying.

 

Voice

Guidance in dark wilderness,
affirmation from white air,
summons repeated near sleep,
inspiration from thunder.
