Poem based on 5th Sunday after Epiphany Mark 1:29-39

Into this world came the Christ
casting out evil
--which had for so long dominated the very life
----of all who lived and breathed
in this perfect creation
--now soiled
----for too long
------for anyone to remember
He came
--casting out and making whole
the people struggling to see
the other side
--of this existence
the other side
--into a world of what is
----from the beginning of time
Jesus came and healed
--(our eyes)
those who suffer
--what they need not suffer
that they may become
--that which they are
----and are called to be
As the hopeless encircled this power
in hope
and felt the Power
--of God
------that place
in their lives
--to far removed from the perfection of the universe
----to know
--(the glory)
------that it is once more
in this place
in this timeless moment
------within the limits of our lives
With the sick and the poor and the despised and the lovely
In a new way for all time
Changing the changeless lives
--(that is)
