Magnificat - Poem by Sonny Rainshine

My life magnifies all life.
All the shortcomings,
all the victories, all the vices,
all the vanities of this one man
mirror and multiply
all those of my brothers, my sisters.

Your life magnifies my life.
What is poetry and music anyway
if not a conversation, a convocation,
a striving for common ground?
If I listen with all my heart,
I just might hear
the very music that you hear.
