Up early

The stately basilica of St John Lateran was near where we stayed when last we went to Rome

Up early

In the city of Rome
the bell chimes for early Mass
already the second of the day

today I have already prayed
turned on microphones
and opened doors

filled with your presence
I am all too aware
that you were up
long before I even got here
