1st Sunday after Epiphany (Baptism of our Lord) Mark 1:4-11

As one possessed
----he stood there
in rags
----the mere shadow of what a man should be
----with no thought
--------as to what the world would say
--------this gaunt human form
----the Message of Life
------------to come
----to a world in death
with all the water
--------about his feet
------------and the rocks
------------of this created
Proclaiming the call
----not to himself
But to one
----who was to come
----Breaking through the reeds
----that separate
the Calm
----of the land living its own
from the Mayhem
--------of the future glimpse
--------at this rivers edge
----no one of note
to heed the call
--------to come
----------------the water
--------and live
And As The Water Broke
------------With New Life
The Heavens Opened
With a Voice
--------from beyond time
“This Is My Son”
----Rippled Through The Existence of All That Was
----------------and Is
----the cooing harmonies of a dove
--------------------upon the shoulder
----of the Christ to be
“Whom I Love”
as the Heavens came crashing
-----------------back together
----on a world

that would never be the same
