At St. John’s One Day

L.T. Garvin

Venerable church

desolate in desertion

meadow-sheltered

the fields spanning out

in geometric patterns

fringing the borders of crops

and headdresses of dandelions.

Inside, the sunlight streams

casting kaleidoscopic patterns

alighting salvation’s path

gleaming through

yesterday’s songs

of choirs passed.

Hymnals once opened

hearts enveloped

in crisp Sunday shirts

seeking the beauty

of one true light

peace offered

in the feathers of a dove.

The ensemble of

mixed voices

uplifting, saving

still presses upon these walls

then rushes beyond where

the sacred rivers meet.
