When Flowers Were I n Bloom

When Flowers Were I n Bloom

Wednesday

When Light Breaks
















When light breaks
across La Sangre 
de Cristo peaks
and leaves shimmer 
along the pathway
when beams burst 
from the towers 
of St. Francis 
of Assisi
and Living Light
illuminates
the cobble streets 

of Santa Fe
when flames dance 

above my head
and prayers drone 

from Cristo Rey 
to San Miguel
when hymns drift 

along the walkways
and Holy Faith

is a golden glow
the park bench 

becomes a pew
and father stands 

before me
hands firm

on my shoulders
voice tenor

and beautiful
years fade 

and I remember
I am 

my Father's son
and sings my soul
I am 

my Father's son
and sings my soul
