On Eucharist: roar and sing (a poem)

roar and sing
by dan wilt
(reflections on eucharist)

hear these sounds of wheat and silver,
baked and filled for choir song

pulsing with a story single
roaring bread and singing cup

too pristine this sanctuary?
not for me, whose wounded life

finds within its hallowed glasswork
breathing hope and dying strife

for within these sounds of wonder
deep resides a melody

food that brings me back to hunger

wine that foams love’s revery

hear these sounds of wheat and silver,

baked and filled for choir song

pulsing with a story single
roaring bread and singing cup

(c) 2009 dan wilt
