Pentecost

by Sarah Law

Only breath 
& the rain – 
 
fluid world
falling
 
cold sting
shuttering
 
open up
wide eye
 
to a new
translucency – 
 
slick haired 
graceling – 
 
neophyte
at fifty
 
years
           days
since
 
your Lord
is raised
 
heartbeat
in everything – 
 
fine thread
loosened – 
 
aureole
shot through
 
dove-white – 
sunlit –
