When the Spirit Came

(Part of my E100 series of poems)

Acts 2

We didn’t know
What would happen
When we gathered
In that room

All we knew
Was the promise
That the Spirit
Would come soon

Roaring wind
Tongues of fire
Speeches bold
In varied words

What was spoken
What was written
Now is seen
Now is heard

Power of heaven
Poured out freely
So all people
Might be drawn

Come receive
This wondrous gift
Come and know
That God is here
