Hearing into Speech

Twin miracles
that morning in Jerusalem
when Pentecost
meant the birth of the church
Speaking in tongues
as the Spirit made then able
But hearing into speech,
informing the mission, the ministry
these two millennium
spreading the message of that morning
every outward, ever more
into the foreign lands, foreign tongues
hearing the singular truth
in your own words
Apostles generation by generation
land by land, language
by language, throughout the earth
from that nexus, big bang
that Pentecost morning
