Sunday Poetry: Hildegard of Bingen

"Who are the prophets"

Who are the prophets?
They are a royal people,
who penetrate mystery
and see with the spirit's eyes.
In illuminating darkness they speak out.
They are living, penetrating clarity.
They are a blossom blooming only
on the shoot that is rooted in the
flood of light.

--Hildegard of Bingen
