Joel 2:28 “It will happen afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; and your sons and daughters will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams. Your young men will see visions.” 


Tongues of flame 
accompanied the tongues 
of men 
caught up, thanks 
to your loving-kindness,
in the mystical ecstasy
of the upside-down Babel
that occurred amongst the
poor, the dirty, the 
uneducated, the packed-in,
the over-looked 
who were all loved by 
you enough to be
poured into, Holy Spirit.
Joel wept and shouted to 
see this day.
