1st Sunday in Lent Mark 1:12-15

 The old has passed

With a final test and purging

That has set the stage

--in this plane

for eternity to break in

to a world

--still the same

--and yet new


a world that has seen

--its future dashed


-----------and again

------by the mindless strivings

of humanity

--trying so very hard

(for the kingdom)

---------to make it alone

standing in its toddler steps

and facing


(of God)

in the hopes and dreams

---of making it

--------with an eye toward the God who was and is

on their own

but the air smells different now

(is at hand)

with a newness

--------and a freshness

that seems to come from beyond time


and there is an excitement

(has come to a fullness)

in the air

(that has not been known

on this earth

since God looked at what had been made

and said

It is good)
