Too Soon

Our savior with us
walking this earth
humbled, emptied
giving up his throne
for the manger
living as the lamb
becoming the sacrifice
too soon going
in a whisper of time only
dying, rising
returning to eternity

after reading this poem:
A Brief Moment

Not really a season
a brief moment
a whisper of time only
Long enough for memory
but the taste still lingers
sweet upon our lips

written about facebook
exchange about the House of Purpose
coffeehouse stopping for a couple of months
(only July and August regular event),
not really a “season”
