Waiting


After Acts 1

The creation waits, standing
on tiptoe, for the sons to be
revealed, to be
redeemed, first the sons
then the creation to be
redeemed from the then
to the will be
to the crown,
waiting

sometimes it is not go ye
sometimes it is stay ye
and wait
wait for the words spoken
by tongues of fire
wait, and you will know
why you wait;
it is not what you expect.

Admonished by men in white
they turn from the cloud,
from the hill, returning
to the town,
to the room, to wait
for what is not known,
for what is hoped.

Jesus' last words weren't 'go and do' but 'wait.' A good reminder, Glynn.

Beautifull... but here's better:
High, girl!
Wouldn’tya love an eternity of aplomBombs??
An extraordinary DHTML @ warp-speed
with no zooillogical-expiration-date?
With an IQ much higher than K2?
Here’s what the prolific GODy sed:

“Faith, hope, and love,
the greatest of these is love -
jump into faith...
and you'll see with love”
Doesn’t matter if you don’t believe
(what I write);
God believes in you.
