Poem based on 3rd Sunday after Epiphany Mark 1:14-20

The time is fulfilled
--into this world
--------ripped apart
--by timelessness entering in
comes the news
the time is fulfilled
and with that this carpenter from Nazareth
reaches in into this place
--and time
and calls out to
--follow me
Simon and Andrew
--the net of labor
toiled over by so many
in favor of wonders
--at hand
leaving behind a life
looked down on by some
--and admired by others
for one of joy
and lust for the many headed wonder of newness
out of the heat
(and believe)
--of this world
and into the perceived pursuit
-- of all that is wonder
-- -- -- joy
-- --- -- -- peace
joined by others
who only make
-- the fever pitch of excitement
-- -- closer to a reality only dreamed of
with little thought
to the demands
-- that would be placed on them by love
as they tried to present
(the Gospel)

the good news
