Confluence: Maundy Thursday 2023
Confluence of Word and flesh,
Confluence of Spirit and our spirits,
in our bodies;
Confluence of Body and Blood,
in bread and wine.
Crossed: Good Friday 2023
Delight of the Father,
Filler, emptied; Immensity, squeezed; Gatherer, isolated;
Teacher, distraught; Walker, lamed; Welcomer, woe-begone;
Renovator, degenerated; Healer, pained; Joiner, dislocated;
Heaven, in hell;
Joy of the Earth,
Raid: Easter Sunday 2023
by the Spirit.
Dead Son is
snatched out, scooped up,
by the Father.
