To build a wall

After Nehemiah 3:1-32 and Ephesians 2:12-14

To build a wall
or rebuild a wall
requires the mending
of broken gates,
the gates punctuating
the wall as it encircles
protectively, a mother
hawk. Brick by brick’
and stone by stone
the wall rises aside the gates
and lengthens connection
in completion.
