She is Spirit

Art by Margaret Kyle

Art courtesy of Margaret Kyle (

She unsettles our comfort and comforts the unsettled;
And her spark lights the candle that burns through the dark;
She is the imagination of artists and poets and preachers;
the muse for the scientist, the architect and the teachers;
She dares to renew and longs to recreate,
being catalyst and yeast and disturber we need;
She’s the curve in the banana, and the spice in the chilli;
The colour in a rainbow and the squeeze in a hug;
She is the protest at injustice
and the impatience for change;
The blessing in the water
and water of life;
She is the chord in the chorus
and the chorus in song;
The midwife of creation
and creation’s big sister;
The love-song of God
and the dance steps of life;
She is the energy of imagination on which all theories are built;
Her ideas are the visions that birth revolutions;
She is the breaker of walls
pirouettes over boundaries;
and the question that implodes every prejudice we have;
She is the silence in words
and the word breaking silence;
The moment in eternity holding eternity in one moment;
She is the brokenness in bread and the shimmer in wine
and the grace that opens the table where all come to dine;
She is the doubt in our certainty and our invitation to question;
The daring that breaks stand-offs
and the enticement to change;
She is the first and the last and the greatest and least;
the signature that turns each conflict to peace
She is the maker of adventurers
and the unknown in every map;
the journey, the traveller, the companion, the trek;
She is the mover and shaker that comes out from heaven
and chooses to live with and dance with us here;
She is…
She is…
She is the Spirit.
