You are a wild and gleeful thing,
nudged by lavish grace
towards all the astonishments,
and nothing can stop it
You are not a mistake.
The earth aches for your singular life,
for the miracle radiance
of purely, specifically
The shakings and the dark noises+ Gideon Heugh, in Devastating Beauty
of a man-made world
cannot compete with your hallelujah blood,
your hosanna spirit,
or with the gentle fury of hope.
Sharing this profoundly beautiful poem again today for all of us who need reminding of who we are.
