Jesus in the Marrow

Jesus in the Marrow



You arrived again, reviving

the groove, clearing

out the debris of lingering

madness and anxiety, brilliant

blazing again with your miracles,

your compassion that leaves me breathless

with joy, surges within with affection, protecting,


feeling like a did when I was a child

and my father walked with me on his shoulders

and I could see higher, further than ever before,

safe and moving, knowing

I would never be harmed, never abandoned,

knowing the freedom of a child’s fearlessness,

trust in the strength of the one who loves me,

trust in the power of the one who carries me like

a queen, like someone special,

unshackling my imagination, restoring my vigour

and swoon.


You arrived again and I remember

all of it, all of your love,

dazzling, perfect, saturating

my seat at the table, overflowing.
