The heart shakes

After Acts 4:31

After Acts 4:31

I sit with them
and listen, hearing
what happened, how
the nations raged
and the people plotted.

The words turn sideways.
The room fills. A presence

the shaking of the room,
the shaking of the heart.

The gospel is my opinion
of you. The gospel is
my definition of you.

your reality of me.
The gospel is
your journey,
your destination,
your life.

The gospel is extended
