Words obeyed

Lifeless

Powerless

Born from closeness

Innocent touch

Soft

Touch

 

The sacred text

The words on page

Love embodied in flesh

Yours and mine

Touch is the sacred that Words can’t express

 

 

A poem dedicated to the memory of a friend, a friend  remembered for her generosity with hugs.

A reflection based around:

Isaiah 55:11

so is my word that goes out from my mouth:

    It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

God’s word is not like an incantation  ie.  a power in written words –  following Jesus means following him through the incarnation where the Word becomes flesh.  God is love – love embodied – love in action.
