“She (Wisdom) is in all things like the air receiving the sunlight.
In her they prosper. In her they glorify God. In her they rejoice
to reflect Him. In her they are united with him. ” Thomas Merton

striated layers of time
rise sharply to the sky,
and flatten out
against anchoring blue
ages of rain and wind
and pain.

we are
the air receiving sunlight,
shattering the long night
on smooth, warm stone

we are
the morning joy
of earth, wisdom
of eternal
