Twilight in the forest cathedral








                   the forest just before dusk is like a

                   cathedral

                   full of shine and God

                   the nave up to the horizon

                   tall columns of hardy pines

                   a vault from the hazy sky slowly sloping

                   over


                   treetops




                   light glows obliquely between the trunks

                   red as through the pieces of cathedral

                   stained glass,




                   just before dusk the forest becomes

                   quiet





                   The Holy Spirit in thousands of chirping

                   particles falls asleep

                   in hollows and nests,

                   he leaves us with the gift of tongues

                   ,

                   at last

                   we are able to talk to each other
