Mysteries Of Light

The Rosary at the Birth of Spring



Primavera, first truth

baptism of rebirth

heaven's windows wide, laundered light shedding

amnesty promised, earth's hallowed wedding

to a transfigured kingdom


Jordan's stale river

cleansed Holy Water

Cana's brackish springs become vintage wine

old wineskins rupture, set free the True Vine

effervescent occasion!


Winter defeated

live current fêted

blood fired and rewired, streamed in the cycle

Eucharistic Bread, a veiled miracle

short-circuiting death's dark ruse
