Poem For the Sunday Lectionary (Easter 3, Yr B)

THEN HE OPENED THEIR MINDS
(Luke 24: 36-48)

As the pine cone opens
to the warm breath of spring

as the buds of the tree
open to the sun

as the thirsty earth opens
to life-giving rain

as the mouth of the babe
opens for milk

as the heart of the lover
opens to its love

so open our minds
Creator eternal

so open our minds
O Lover of all

so open our minds
O crucified Redeemer

to the presence of your grace
in the sacred word,

and the grace that is your presence,
O living Word.
