Chalice Lighting on Thresholds

Sunlight streams through a rounded window.

We kindle this flame,
Honoring the doorways in our souls:
The windows through which we gaze at one another
The balconies where we catch glimpses of sky
The thresholds we stand on this morning
Wondering, hoping, fearing, dreaming.
