For a long time


For a long time I have been uncomfortable with creating.

Since becoming a Christian I have feared God’s law.

It has been easier to read or think than to make.

I’ve been like the Jews who had for thousands of years

kept within the circle of their knowledge.


God created the world and it was good.

We are each conceived in an act of love.

The boy Jesus listened and asked questions

and saw the world freshly.


The afternoon grows tired.

Sunlight revives things in the morning.
