Antiphon

 

I look towards the east – I see the distant

hills – sunlit – beautiful beneath

the sky. One year – our home – resilient –

our rising and our setting – roses – wreathes –

commemorating life – two compass points –

my parent’s home looks to the west – at dawn –

the distant skyscrapers – the sun anoints –

by day – expansiveness – an antiphon –

the rising and the setting light – a child

and youth – a man in middle age – a mirror –

one appears within the other – exile –

loneliness – a star that twinkles – brighter –

travellers note – eternity within –

an immanence – that teaches us to sing.
