Above Ground

In the land of manna,*

you experienced healing through 

        reflections of street lights in rain puddles

        the sale bin at Brandy Melville

        broken train lines 

        & kind faces


You rode a moving staircase 

that emerged above ground 

under a tree canopy 


In the land of manna, 

you felt beautiful for 

the first time 


Let this be a testimony 

of God piercing together a 

heart that needed healing 



*Bread God provided daily for the Israelites during their forty years in the wilderness.
