2015.08.31: child reborn

Jesus said to them, “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” – Lk 4:22

oh, to be like a child reborn
to look upon all things again
with fresh eyes opened wide
to take in the wonder of the new
and the awe of the unknown

oh, to see like a child reborn
to greet everyone anew
without the learned labels
reaching out to touch all
who comes into vision

maybe then will i witness
the prophet sharing a cup of advice
the priest feeding the hungry many
the king walking empty handed
the Spirit of the Lord in the world

maybe then will i proclaim:
the Spirit the Lord is upon the world
“the Spirit of the Lord is upon me”
“the Kingdom of God is here”
the Kingdom of God is up to me
