Working priests

After Nehemiah 3:1-32 and Ephesians 2:12-14

Instead of seeing them
in temple or in worship,
I see priests stacking
bricks, carrying stones,
mixing mortar to bind
bricks and stones
together, hands calloused
and dirty, faces of dust
rivered by sweat. I see them
build this wall and perform
an act of worship, the same
as the invisible wall built
with sacrifice, constructed
with redemption.
