After Acts 2

Together in one place
waiting as told
waiting as instructed
waiting for the help
and leading promised
waiting because it is
what were called to do: wait

the fire comes
with wind and roaring
tongues of fire resting
atop our heads
our voices joined to the roaring
wind and fire speaking
in languages
we did not learn
we do not know
but heard and understood by all
standing before us each
in his own language

the wind roars through our hearts
the spirit arcs in fiery flames
consuming our hearts
