staggered as they were rising

something so very different
the way John approached Jesus
a deep connection
a change in the roles
watching them together
cousins, both on the way
one preparing for the other
the one the light, the Way
watching them fall
into the water in baptism
the sky opening up
as they breached the surface again
staggered as they were rising
a rift in the heavens
the Spirit of God descending
falling bodily on Jesus
the weight of the world
rising from the waters
from the River Jordan
hearing a voice from heaven
anointing Jesus as God’s son
the One who was foretold
