An Overseas Telephone Call

Renewed
Redeemed
Revitalised...

Interlinked
by common caring
from afar
a voice is calling
into distance
into darkness
comes the force
the power of light

For a moment
for a lifetime
love and joy
are caught and held
skies are lit
by sudden laughter
living, loving
catching light

Questions never asked
are answered
miles are mocked and
absence scorned
energy received
recorded
spinning, skimming
catching light

For that moment and forever
a crystal gem
that caught the light...
