Saturday 13th March

The death of John the Baptist (Matthew 11:1-6 and 14:1-12)

I am alone

In the dark.

Did I hear wrong?

Were all my hopes

That God has come

Just wishful thinking?

Was my life’s work

As transient

As desert brushwood

And the faithfulness

Of God’s people?

I try to cling

To fading memories:

Him standing in the water

And my sense

That heaven was somehow

Touching earth

In new ways.

And yet, as I hear

In the distance

The sounds of partying,

I am afraid.
