Back to the city

After Luke 24:50-53 and Acts 1:1-11

From the olive mount
they walk back to the city,
the city of endings
and beginnings, his words
echoing, wait for the one
who will be sent, wait
for the one with power
of spirit, the one who
comes upon you, and you
will know when that
happens, but not the time
it happens, it is all of a piece,
of a plan, starting back
in the city but spreading
outward from there,
the place of endings
and beginnings, 
you do not know the then,
but you will know the now.
