Were You The Earthquake They Predicted

to Jesus Christ, the Lord, friend and saviour

were you the earthquake they predicted
then buried alive
but you survived

a king in no hiding
kingdomless they said at the last minute
were you in it

or were you somewhere else
all the time
communing with

what should have been
what could have been
with only the green leaves for friends

the waves of the sea
walk upon the glass of our hearts
that we might not shatter

let all that matters in the world
slip away
holding onto the day you

came back
cooking us fish
with the honey glaze.
