Truly Here


you...truly here

as you were

then...with friends

frail like

autumn leaves

waiting for your time...

it was a

place for sharing

as we

in a small and plain chapel...

bread...your body

a winter tree contorted


your blood spilled in

moments of agony

beyond words...

it is all beyond time

not dependent only

on words but the

pure truth...the

pierced hands...

head bowed

it is finished”

your last words

branch of a winter tree

your arms outstretched

seek the fallen still...

you...with us...

truly here...
