Hierophany

—the manifestation of the sacred


at a church on a hill overlooking the Arno River
where Gregorian chants spilled
outside and stillness settled

after climbing a scramble of rocks
to the ridge top of Old Rag Mountain
reading Psalms as Peregrine Falcons soared

listening to a choir of five
sing Amazing Grace
at Harper’s Ferry folk festival

each note the door to a sacred space
