Power in the Clouds

By Annmarie Lockhart
Inspiration piece

Maybe if we climb high enough
above the clouds like Dorothy,
beyond the noise of Babel,
the tastes of the polyglot pantry,
the closeness of sweat and steam,
we will remember the stretch of mind,
the reach of fingers, the pull of heart,
the bind of common need.

Maybe up is the way out, one rung
at a time, leading us out of this gutted garden
and into that consecrated constellation
waiting to be reclaimed.
