Letter from prison


I am reading Paul’s
letter to the
Philippians
early on
a Saturday
in Lent--
the text
of our retreat
what the leader
said was
more an advance,
a movement
toward.
As the sun
comes over
the mountain,
shines into
my room,
the warm
yellow rays
laying across
the thin
pages in my
hand,
I imagine
St. Paul
smiling
from his cell
as he signs
his name,
hands the
letter
to the guard,
and passes
it on.
