After an evening of distant lightning

a soft rain began to fall.


Our people have moved far from the earth.

I lie on the cool grass.

Above me are the mysterious lights of a far-off plane.


When I became a Christian the initial insight

came to me on the bed of my parents –

that I came from them, and they from their parents,

and so back to God.


Tonight I realised something else –

I was conceived in love

so love is my beginning.
