After John 17:26

It was the asteroid, coming
seemingly from nowhere,
hitting or landing in an out-of-the-way
place with tremendous force
and impact, but almost unnoticed 
farther away, until the shock waves
and the wind and the waves
radiating from the center
embraced everything it their path,
and everything was in their path,
until nothing was untouched,
nothing left the same,
nothing left unchanged, fundamentally,
even the rocks and mountains,
the columned palaces and temples,
everything, everything was engulfed
in a wave of love,
everything, to the point that
the force could be resisted but
it could not be denied,
it could not be stopped.
