Poem: Fire to life
NewsNotes, May-June 2009

Bolivia, in times past, as
Day surrendered to the night
High upon a mountain slope
Llamas in a pack aligned
Facing west in graceful pose
Eyes upon the fading sun
Drawn, no doubt, by beauty’s lure.

And I, in whom spirit knows
Llama, setting sun and Source,
Contemplate the holy One
Fountainhead of all that is
Womb forever pouring fourth
Fire to life, life to spirit
Blessed be, Oh blessed be!

Sr. Ann Braudis, MM
