This Sunny day, after the snowstorm,
the backyard will be our church
with crunchy snowdrift pews
birds chirping in the sunlight our homily
the melted snow in our boots will anoint us
we will congregate
we will exchange snowball signs of peace
we will not hear the word of God
We will be the word of God.
