Renewal of Wonder Poem by Ken Peters


white light like a gift I did not expect or earn
each object singular and lambent in this glow
common objects made holy by the light
that illuminates/infuses/informs
from within
a renewal of wonder
shatters my complacency
colors run wild and warm
in what was once my dingy suite
the small rooms suddenly expanded
the cracked wall speaking eloquently
the old chair infused with sense and sentiment
let me stay like this
forgetful of every sin I have ever committed
here now with the light
***
