Yeah, Yeah, Yeah... a poem

So I know what you're thinking: 'I come to this blog for the primary authors brilliance and ability to hold to the Word in the midst of so many words. But what's this? A poem?! Boring!'

Exactly what you were thinking right?

Well... yes it is a poem. The Latin translates to, "Man is naturally curved in upon himself."

Becoming Human


Homo curvatus en se es

-Martin Luther


We are not yet humans.


We are the whales that breach

our oceans with beautiful gestures,

only to soon sink into our own

vast recesses.


We await our evolution--

the hope thrown off between crashing

waves--when we are found


on the shore,

walking upright,

proclaiming mercy

to Ninevah.

I enjoy this, and would gladly continue reading (with glee) if you were to continue posting such matter.
