Babel Broken

A reversal of fortunes
of the breach sealed
of the power given,
The cacophony solved
different language gone
replaced by the one Good News
the same and eternal, shared
by the Apostles
that Pentecost ‘morn
filled with the Spirit
not new wine,
new skins bursting
to proclaim the news
Empowered, emboldened,
imbued by the Spirit,
by grace alone,
with authority and power
ready to spread the news
to feed the sheep
in pastures far and near,
wherever they may be
