At the Altar

Naomi French

by

Crack in the cliff below:
a cavernous church
where a tidal choir of waves
echoes into the depths,
rolling all the way
back to the beginning.
It pulls me into its salt slick,
roaring void
as the world tumbles down.
I gather up the orenda,
sea and sky
nestling into the quiet places
of my heart.
I bend to the shape of the wind.
