“With Heart and Voice”
plays Gloria Patri, a Trinitarian anthem:
“Glory be to the Father and to the Son . . ..”
A Capella voices ruffles Sunday papers
and wrinkles leftover syrup bobbing with pancake crumbs.
Energy currents vibrates, strings on a cello
inside Newton’s apple; a cosmic symphony
echoes between neutrons and galaxies.
There is only singing—
harmony, tempo and crescendo—
a trinity of mystical resonance
Gloria Patri—three voice waves
swelling in my eardrums.
