Looking for Words
By JoAnne Growney

Our land and words are one, Romania explains.

To help me understand, friends take me

through Transylvania, land of Dracula

and ancient painted monasteries.

To help me understand, friends take me

in a van with sleeping bags, a store of food,

to visit ancient monasteries painted

with sacred stories to last forever.

We travel in a van, carry picnic food,

marvel at unfading lapis on concrete walls—

sacred stories saved to tell forever—

pastel lift to heaven, red descent to hell.

We marvel at unfading lapis on concrete walls—

spiritual instruction for those who have no books:

pastel lift to heaven, red descent to hell—

and, at the nuns’ clear windows, bright geraniums.

Instructing those who have no books—

through Transylvania, land of Dracula—

nuns brighten clear windows with red geraniums.

Our land and words are one, Romania explains.
