A Glimmer

IMG_0600

The world would
overwhelm
were it not
for the light…
a tiny glimmer
that shines in
my soul
fed by gospel
words
parables
and letters.

It wavers.

The great apostle
speaks with clarity
names the
difficult
issues
and offers
Jesus
for the journey.

This light
needs fuel
in numbers
of one
yet numbers
of many.

It needs
boots on the
ground
willing to
go the distance
miles uncounted.

It needs
honesty
not words
crafted to
spin a
safe
cocoon.

It
needs
the fuel
of reconciliation
that comes
from love
with love.

It needs
voices
to silence
the
silence.

It
needs
a
fire.
