The Concrete's Reciprocal


The concrete, trampled on, broken, porous, and too-soon old

absorbing his red warmth, resisting the creeping cold

It was hallowed ground now, inscribed by a stain indelible

In a language, too much familiar, but still illegible

So routine a ritual, even the sun seemed to no longer care

And danced irreverently in the darkness of his unseeing stare

Until wolf-like in form, she mourned, primal and unbound

The woman who knelt, unashamed, on this, her holy ground

Sharp chords of her despair chastised, dismissed the careless air

Connecting with a remnant of his spirit silently waiting there

Joined again, as once they were by the life-giving umbilical

She arose from the inscribed concrete having become its reciprocal


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
