The Authority of Heaven


The authority of heaven doesn’t rest

in the rod but in the flower.

Like an almond tree it blossoms

early after winter’s ice and fruits

in tear shaped nuts with brittle shells.

In the spring its pink blossoms

flutter in the sky and dew drips

mirror lightening shafts of sunlight.
