Hey, eveyone!

I'm swamped with work today and am now getting ready for my class tonight, so no random musings today . . .

However, I will leave you with a poem to mull over:

Backward Miracle
Kay Ryan

Every once in a while
we need a
backward miracle
that will strip language,
make it hold
a minute: just the
vessel with the
wine in it —
a sacramental
refusal to multiply,
reclaiming the
single loaf
and the single
fish thereby.

This is humbling in its simple use of language and imagery. I have great respect for short, powerful works.

It is quite powerful . . . I'm so glad you commented, Merci!
