Finding Jesus - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

I found

in the middle of
O' Connell Street

('round 'bout 4.30)

arms spread wide
in gentle benediction

as if he had

just beamed down
from wherever

Heaven is...was

only to find himself
trapped in a glass box

as if in
another dimension.

'Help me! Help me! '
he cried

(in a muffled scream)

'Save me! Save me! '
Jesus wept.

But I thought
Heaven can wait

& anyway

the lights had changed.

    I'm slow... how did you find Him? What did He say? Why He cried? (Report) Reply
