Family

Family

The creative genius of God:

Clay

Just lay there

And then, in joyful play,

He fashioned it this way and that …

Adding a head

Removing a hat

Stretching an arm,

Pooching some fat ..

Until it looked like something … Somebody …

And God’s Said,

“I like this somebody …

I’ll make Him another-body.”

And He didn’t stop until

He had done a beautiful thing:

Made a family and called it

Humankind.

And then He arranged them this way and that

And shook them about and scattered them around And called them back into an odd assortment of folks and before anyone knew it,

He’d made a church

And called it, His Body.
