The Pull of Light

Did Jesus
feel this way
as the end of day
When he sat down
And reflected
On how many people
He healed
How many people
he taught
How many people
He demonstrated God’s love?

Did he only
notice the striving?
Did he only
see what was
still left to do?
Or was he aware
of your presence
all around him?

Today was and is many things:
The fear of violence
The sweetness of cheesecake
On my tongue
The intimacy
of confidences shared
So many words
Hungry people fed
Space reimagined
More words

All this time
Crocuses creep and crack
Through the cold earth
Somehow knowing
Deep within their darkness
That pull towards the light.

May we be pulled too. Amen.
