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 did...here

in a small and plain chapel...

bread...your body

a winter tree contorted

in pain...wine

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...

George Coombs
