We are mourn again

In which we break our silence for Charleston. 

Mourn-again Christians

Pile the flowers
in the street
the letters the teddy bears
the detritus of grief
in the night we lift
candles shining with a light
you cannot see 
nor will you hear
the lost voices raised in
silent song. Lift up
your hearts
we lift them up to a
lord who says
the lilies of the field
want for nothing
even as we gather

to pile the flowers

Written for the Writer's Digest Poem a Day Challenge, April 2015.
