Heard the preacher use that word

Never before thought of it

That way

Of Him that way.

Pulling things together

Sensibly and equitably

Law and reprieve

Code and practice

Jew and Gentile

Love and truth

Body and spirit

Priest and sacrifice

Self-doubt and

The greatest of hopes

Stories turned into

Most noble performance.


The reconciler of all wannabees

With actual present.

And another word

From some good reading.


By Him all things consist

All of life's push and pull.

The goldsmith watches

The liquid promise

And the furnace

Averting disaster

And bringing forth

Exquisite treasure in due time.
...and lights go on
and I pause
and I weep
