- Only One Voice
Only one voice, but it was singing and the words danced and as they danced held high— oh, with what grace!—their lustrous bowls of joy. Even in the dark we knew they danced, but we— none of us—touched the hem of what would happen. Somewhere around a whirl, swirl, a pirouette, the bowls flew and spilled, and we were drenched, drenched to the dry bone in our miserable night. Only one voice, but morning lay awake in her bed and listened, and then was out and racing over the hills to hear and see. And water and light and air and the tall trees and people, young and old, began to hum the catchy, catchy tune. And everyone danced, and everyone, everything, even the last roots of the doddering oak believed in life. Jessica Powers Add your thoughts at inward/outward
