Storm on the lake

After Matthew 14:22-33

The thousands fed,

he craves solitude;

miracles tend to do that.


The disciples sent

to go before him

to the other side.


The storm upon the lake

arises, fierce winds,

raging waves, disciples trapped.


They are frightened

by the storm, and worse

mistake rescue for a ghost


As he walks towards them

on water, a solitary figure,

shining in white light,


Saying take heart, it’s I,

do not be afraid.
