Peek-a-boo, I see you

Advent 3 – Year A

Peek-a-boo, I see you

As a representative partner of G*D, is anyone coming out to see you?
If they did what would they see?

= = = = = = =

John erupts from the wilderness
and folks flock forward
warned to flee
through baptism
further into wilderness

Jesus sighs into Bethlehem
magi and shepherd welcomed
warned to flee
through a Reed Sea
deeper into exile

John comes through silence
to stand stolidly
amid water
that gives life
on the way to a Dead Sea

Jesus appears suddenly
having stood nowhere
among people
revealed as beloved
and tempted

amid all these variations
their descendants
in our skin
risk imprisonment
going on to wholeness

strength from each to each
breaks forth in deserts
growing flowers
life-long farmers
of joy and gladness

and on this farm
prophets grow, ready
to face fear
here a ready, there a ready
to be hopeful news
