Black Jesus Speaks to Typhoon

Barbara Jane Reyes

Wind, do you remember breathing
through me; I was your instrument.
Come, let us sing again, you and I,
as your children gather rain, drum
beat stomp feet clap hands and call.
Let the trees sway, whisper, drop
their fruit. And when the waters recede,
a banquet at your children's feet.
