He drags the wood along the ground,
Carving a furrow in the soil,
A valley. Dark at the bottom.
We must follow the path
He has made for us.
If you do not follow the path,
You will not see the furrow.
Unless a grain falls in, nothing will grow.
We lose bit by bit if we follow ….
If we choose to follow.
The earth is wet with his blood and water.
Ready for us, waiting to give birth.
We do not climb a mountain in life.
We descend into a valley,
Which is really nothing,
(Not the chasm he leapt into)
To join the dust.
Give away every crumb
to this hungry earth.
For the bread is a gift.
We did not make it.
Take it in,
and let it go.
The furrow climbs up at the end, to him.
He will reach down and raise us up,
Grasping our empty hands.
