We Are The Poem

by Hilary Horn

By Ana Lisa de Jong — 

We are the poem.

You, and I.

The issue from His lips,
the language in which He speaks.

We are the gift ,
both to each other and to Him.

A poem in ourselves.

Repeated and re-formed
each time that we use our voice.

We are the poem
without an end,

which like a scroll
unfolding from creation,

is continually written upon.

We are the voice He speaks
in a world in which He is silent,

but for us,
who hear Him.

And who hear ourselves
resonate with all creation

as wind bells
across the mountains.

We are the poem.

You, and I.

The bearers of the Word.
