Departure Day


  I wonder…

What was Your departure like?

Did You take Your time leaving heaven?

Did You give Michael and Gabriel see-you-later embraces?

Did angels peer over jasper walls and sing a “’Til We Meet Again,” type song?

Did You step quickly through luminescent gates into the dark channel of human flesh?


did You stretch out Your departure  by

sauntering through the galaxies,

knowing that this cosmic view

would be confined to only memory

during the next three decades?

When You left, did You glance back?

Did you consider that heaven would not be the same

when You returned?

I wonder…

When You let go of God-equality

And reached for a grip on human likeness

did you exult in the moment, knowing that  finally,

the Eternally-anticipated Plan had been set in motion?
