The unridden colt

After Luke 19:28-40

It’s still young, but

the unridden colt

has been waiting

for a particular

moment, a time

when it would be

called upon

for a specific use,

unique in history,

a one-time event

never before seen,

never since repeated,

a ride like no other,

a short distance,


to carry a man from

a village to a city.

The distance is

short; the impact

of that ride 

of that man


through history,

Even the colt was born for "such a time as this." Beautiful, Glynn!
