Dawning Praises

Wake up, my heart! Wake up, O lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn with my song.  —Psalm 57:8

You sing for me

and the mountain

before the others 

rise, and I feel

as if I could listen 

to this symphony,

your warbles

and the quaking 

leaves, until

Jesus walks

me home —

such clarity

of voice soothes

a pining ache,

that need to 

worship elemental,

pruned to the root

of being before 

the naming

of things, 

one soul

gazing over

the whole world 

overwhelmed by purity.

—C.L. Fisher, October 2021
