One rose
Small, fluted, deep pink bud
Straining on its taut thorned stem
Into the vast empty air

One thrust
Of being, beauty, form
Challenging nothingness with life
Expiring into perfume

One life
A flash of energy
Tracing a single arc of truth
Against the bleak, dark void

One fierce bright yes
Against the howling no

Faith/Life - A poem by Sandra M. Schneiders, IHM

In peace,
