Ascended

Arms outstretched, eyes focused upward,

Christ is left behind

in the wounds,
in the sorrows,
in the tears,
in the joy,
in the wrinkled hands,
in the dancing,
in the waiting,
in the praying…
even as our hopes and prayers ascend as well.

Gone but present in
body, bone, flesh and blood,
that is – OURS,

given for us to make real
what Christ was sent to announce:
love embodied
from in-side out.

“Jesus said: It is not for you to know the times or periods that the Father has set by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; …
When he had said this, as they were watching, he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight.” Acts 1: 6-7dali-ascension1
