Lent 1 B

Stumbling Toward Jordan

stumbling toward Jordan
eagle spirit claws
deep in our nape

we dive in
as though pursued by bees
deep calling to deep

rising to a quiet call
after compelling obsession
we live outward from blessing

we step out
where angels fear to tread
wilderness schmilderness

thankful for a gifted call
there is no more waiting
time fulfilled - goodness trusted
