Brian, and He that he Reflects


carpenters hands

big, blunt, and spade-like

waving in the air to

emphasize points of thought

and dialogue

hands which could grapple an oak

submissive to the ground

and yet have time for lunch


carpenters hands

large, spread, and love-filled

held out into the gap to

prove that love takes thoughts

and chances

and turns them into deed

beating submissive to the ground

the works of hate



Inspired by Brian Bertrim,

our new Assistant Pastor,

and his reflection of our Lord


Brian, and He that he Reflects
