This Sunday and Rev. Peter's Poem for March

This Sunday April 1, 2018 - "Resurrecting Hope"

Join us as we celebrate Easter Sunday at UUCDC! Rev. Peter, Director of Religious Education Chrissy Bushyager, and Worship Associate Kathy Alston will help us Unitarian Universalists make meaning out of this age-old story that is foundational to the Christian faith. 

Rev. Peter's Poem for March: Equipoise

It must be some kind of 
magic trick, with hidden 
wires and pulleys,
or maybe a confederate stands
behind the curtained valance.
How else could the sun, 
the moon, the earth hang 
in such perfect balance?
 
The earth dances through 
this empty space
like an ingénue, resisting 
the suitor sun’s embrace.
And, all the while, the moon 
is there to pull the seas 
with strength enough
to shift and mold her sister’s face.
 

Gravity drops at our feet
fruit from branches 
too tall to reach,
and holds us close enough 
to dance and kiss and meet,
while seasons last just 
long enough for birth and death, 
and birth again,
in endless cycle sweet.
 
Would that the magic trick, 
that sleight of hand,
be once revealed to me,
that I might learn to hold
my night and day,
my dark and light,
in such perfect equanimity.
