The earth still quakes
with the mystery of God’s Theophany
when He walked upon her surface
The Light broke into the darkness
revealing the infinity of god’s Love
leaving a living example
of that to which we are called
Dwelling among man in human likeness
He spoke and ate, laughed and cried
and slept under her starry nights
Even crawling into the darkest corners
becoming infinitesimally small
beginning the greatest Zeitgeist as just a tiny zygote
Entering the human race as a small, helpless babe Love, dependent upon love to survive!
What Divine folly!
Only God could be so reckless
as to trust us with Himself
