SHEETS OF LIGHT
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett 13 April 2019
Light came down in sheets and folds . . like cake mix falling into a cake pan . . like clothes-pinned billows of wet sheets . . . . .that fold and snap in a wild breeze . . like Heaven slaloming
. . . . . through the streets.
Now, now is the time.
Dearest of the dear
Nearer than the breath of life
Faster than silver-footed thought
More sure than mother’s love
More curious than cats
More glorious than sunlight . . caroming past Palm Sunday
Oh my Soul, remember!
