When Writers Meet Art

Crossing the Streams

Ellen Brenneman

Try to imagine all life as you know it
being transformed, uplifted, redeemed.
Try to imagine justice and mercy
intersecting, bouncing off each other,
until mercy finally wins
and justice says “It’s enough.”
Try to imagine light and hope
entering the universe from some unexpected source
and changing everything they touch.
Everywhere they reach.
Something the angels told you.
Good news.
