Good Work (Eph 2: 10)
The law of life is not written yet
But words to be spoken caught in the throat
Hesitate to speak photons into being.
Holding fast, choosing life, is a risk
But by spirit that law is proclaimed,
Carried on Your breath, galaxies illuminate.
In every corner of Earth and Heaven,
To every creature it is given
And written on our hearts in ink
Life giving like the plasma which moves
And pulses round heavenly bodies.
Stony tablets chipped and lacking or
Painted, canvasful workmanship.
Laws can condemn or promise
Creation worked upon the frame
To free us to move, to love, to live.
And muscles cling to what they cannot feel.
