Twilight in the forest cathedral

                   the forest just before dusk is like a


                   full of shine and God

                   the nave up to the horizon

                   tall columns of hardy pines

                   a vault from the hazy sky slowly sloping



                   light glows obliquely between the trunks

                   red as through the pieces of cathedral

                   stained glass,

                   just before dusk the forest becomes


                   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
