Just now the earth recalls His stunning visitation. Now / the earth and scattered habitants attend to what is possible: that He / of a morning entered this, our meagered circumstance, and so / relit the fuse igniting life in them, igniting life in all the dim / surround.

Advent: The Body Incarnated Bears New Light

I remember your advent / assumed the rounded shape hope / has, how the arching / patch of whiteness you incorporated / indicated the gleam an apple boasts / nesting in folds / in a work you called "Anticipating" / which might have been called / "The Body Incarnated / Bears New Light."
