The Communion of Saints

"This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment.

"This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that, out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope. And where we are met with cynicism and doubts and those who tell us that we can't, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes, we can.
it is passover in
the heartland
the fruit of faith
the hungry hope
is sweet
of saints
the forgiveness of sins
the ressurrection of the body
a brown body
ripe with flight
of falling freedom
in the wind
of change
decidedly different
The mightly hand of God has
watered the harvest
refreshing forty years of faithlessness
there is not an apology
sweeter to the bruised rib
and the broken limb
take the bread to your lips
and partake in the manna
feast in communion
of the storm that is passing over
