poem based on Sunday of Passion Mark 14:1-15:47

Some knew
--at least in part
what you were saying
some heard the words you spoke
so gentle
--so clear
about what was to come
your death
the kingdom
some heard
--and followed you because they heard
without fully understanding it
--there was an urgency in your eyes
----they could sense the pain
----the anguish
--in the moment
and silently
she anointed the one who would be the messiah
for what was to come
blessing that which was to be given
for all humanity
while the rest of the world was about its business
--its agendas
that pit one against another
this one knew
of the bud that was to burst into beauty
in a kingdom breaking in
to the business and agendas of our lives

with love
