Poem based on 13th Sunday after Pentecost John 6:56-69

We study the words and signs
and try to understand
the Greatness
--that is God
the words come to us
--to a fraction
of the message of Love
by our words
How can we understand
How can we really know
The expanse
--the expanse of God’s word
when we are trapped by words
and what they mean
only in relation
to what we know
--in this life
trying to understand
--the workings of the spirit
locked in our own intellect
and limited by it
Christ said we are free
Free to see
--to know God
through Christ
through eating Christ’ body
--and drinking Christ’ blood
through knowing Christ
--not from a distance
but right here
by what Christ does
to me

from deep within
