Life After Death, Living After Love


His feather soft love
Wraps around me like a mother eagle
Clings around me like plastic wrapping
Around an unopened gift.

It holds me into His fulness
It sucks me away from temporal emptiness
It teaches me to live from Love's Source
Like a smiling teacher and a hungry pupil.

Pulling in Life
Keeping out death
Teaching, releasing, assuring
Life comes from Love, not by rights.

It sacrifices itself
Motivates to sacrifice to Him and others
Life after death
Is living after Love.

His love.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

2 Corinthians 5: 14-16 'For the love which Christ has [for me] presses on me from all sides, holding me to one end and prohibiting me from considering any other, wrapping itself around me in tenderness, giving me an impelling motive, having brought me to to this conclusion, namely, that One died on behalf of all in order that those who are living no longer are living for themselves but for the One who died on their behalf and instead of them, and was raised.' (Wuest version)

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
