Epiphany is a time that we mark the appearance of the divine. Christ has come. God is with us. He is with us in the midst of our lives which oftentimes seem random and disconnected. He is with us in our rest and in our work.
May this first poem of Epiphany bring us back to the simplicity of wonder we are called to by the oftentimes unnoticed works of God.
i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
