Rising up with might and weight
Commanding, pushing, forward go.
Walking softly and with heart,
Followers cascade behind; yet following the show.

Forgiving, blind to fault or blame
with love that flows
into the next like a chain of gold
received and strengthened more.

To tell their stories –
Laughing, smiling, shouting, crying –
In life and humans and heaven and dying.

A force combined; unique,
divinely bound.
with clarity and grace,
and raging artful chaos,
that lifts you to the ground.
