My View from the Choir

I watch her infant eyes

She takes in the whole of it

stained glass rainbows

candles flickering

altar draped in white

choir singing alleluias

Gospel hopes proclaimed

chalice gleaming

bread awaiting blessing


Her father’s arms

wrap her in love’s grace

while she lifts her face

eyes wide with wonder

pure and untainted

by fear or sorrow


A channel of love

for all who see her

She gathers and reflects joy

a treasure stored inside

for times to come

if spirit starts to fade

or light hides

behind life’s burdens


She will search for joy again

when she has grown

past the babe in arms

of her beginnings

who plays with shadows

and always sees the light


And when she finds anew

light’s  beam inside

the place where joy resides

she will once again

dance with her shadows

and know that love

was with her all along
