A poem we read out as part of our advent service
A pregnant pause
we are tempted to think
that this is out of character for you
a momentary fragility [showing your tender side]
that once the christmas carols are finished
and the decorations are put away,
you’ll get back to power and might.
but in your completeness - this one chance we get to see flesh and bone
put onto the theory - this is you:
and at the mercy of human response?
so, god, are you holding your breath too
in this pregnant moment….
waiting to see if we will answer
to the fragile question of divine love?
