6. Improvisation

picture by Quinn Fergus Gryphon Neal

            New Orleans, July 2005
In the cobbled grey streets slick with rain
Lilith slipped her shoes off and
Walked bare foot across wet stones
Near the St. Louis Cathedral
As she slapped her feet
The rain still swirled
Lightly dancing the afternoon sun
Like glitter through the air
The world widened like an iris in delight
Gathering the light from my darkness:
In that
I live forever still
(January 2010, from Visions of God)
