The Reign of Christ

I’ve often wondered
why he included

in parables of goat
and sheep, of tare and

of a woman on a floor
to find her one
lost coin

of a manly crowd
with stones to throw at

of ramming rams and
bleating ewes and one
little lamb

of pride and loathing
of specks and logs in

of sight and light
of day and sleepless

of father running to
greet his son from
empty sty

of water and wine
and miracles that healed
the sick and

called forth Lazarus
from the tomb, unwrapping
him and me

– GCS, Nov. 24, 2014 – early Monday morning the day following Christ the King (Reign of Christ) Sunday.

  1. Outstanding poetry! (And as for the earlier discussion re forgiveness, I haven’t forgotten you. I just haven’t had a chance to spend any serious time at the computer. Things aren’t looking too calm for the next two days either. But I’ll be back.)
