Reading Scipture

        Another manuscript and another manuscript,
        Enwrapped, entwined, and coupled together –
        Letters in love with letters.
                A. Leyeles

Page after page, 
a story of ancestors, 
of jealousy between brothers,
of wandering in a barren space,
of complaints and bickering,
of heroes and wise women
who heard God’s voice,
of prophets who raged
against the ease 
of sliding into idol worship
Page after page
we find ourselves--
led to a river,
in the crowd,
being fed,
Book after book of Words
and spirit and the Aleph
of God’s breath
