What we abandon

After Isaiah 65: 17-25

New creation, the second,
beckons, extending
the invitation to step
forward, leaving behind
premature death, futility
of work, rotting
vineyards and cursed
fields, turning our backs
on the houses stolen
from us, the futility
and vanity of toil.
Step forward and accept
the lion and the lamb
lying together in peace,
in the safety of
the holy mountain. It is
only a step forward,
a step through. It is
the first word and
the last word,

a single step.
