temple thoughts, the lying on

your first time in your father’s house

was eight days after Mary placed in your earthly father’s

hands, a builders hands, a carpenter’s


you would learn from him how to touch others for healing,

from the man borne blind who felt your mouth’s waters

to your breaking of bread to feed the hungry

in the temple this first time

Simeon arms held you

prayed and loved you

hands touch. heal

speak, love
