to drink this cup

The cup that I drink you shall drink,
the baptism I am baptised in
shall be your baptism.
– Jesus (Mark 10:39)

 

cup to drink, Lord,
and your pouring?
baptizing
who dared you be

reaching into
rain-time soaking,
thawing frozen heart
to spring.

midst this twining,
wooden bower,
passion risen
red and green,

face to wash
in light remaining,
wake me now,
your field to see.
