Eucharist

Fallen seed

hidden

not taken.

Moistened

overtaken

broken.

Awakened

called out

to outgrow its death

fill its latent shape

push and seek

the light

bathe

breathe earth’s air

enfold time

into its fiber

defying gravity.

 

Smooth shell

greying

crusting itself

into wizened story.

Green hands

receive

radiant life

reshaping

taking shape

pushing up to

reach for more

of itself.

 

Divine seed

fallen

into tissue and blood

overtaken

fed and formed

in the body

he made.

Seeded woman

humble soil

offering her offspring

to earth’s air.

 

Broken boy

clinging to the tree

he made.

Life force

defying gravity

pushing up

spilling out

down

moistening the soil

reshaping

into love’s food.

 

Wood felled

and riven.

Sun and soil

rain and air

bound together

holy altar

offering its offspring.

 

Grain and fruit

sun and soil and air

love’s ancient force

shaping

binding to unbind

broken boy

fallen

into greening hands

reaching for life

defying gravity.
