shavuot anew

simple holiday
barely known by Jews today
first wheat harvest feast

fifty days after
the last major holiday
passover had come

now we share this day
Christians have a day to say
shalom – and then some

peace and love for sure
but also fire and power
flames alight – a sign

best kind of burning
holy zeal to build a Church
Jesus at the base

all else will be chaff
really – what would Jesus do?
His Spirit Informs

I sit with Jesus
and wait in my upper room
for enlightenment

flames burn hot today
and yesterday – and days before
I pray for fire – pure

with shalom.
