On The Road

We are always somewhere on the road to Emmaus,

heads bowed against the sting of wind-whipped sand.

Concerned with making miles before the end of day

we do not always hear the summons sent to us.

What does it mean to realize resurrection from the dead?

The answer is never clear and the road makes

so many twists and turns through Gaza, Guatemala,

Colombia, Rwanda, Israel and Sudan.

All we really know is that we must follow where it leads

and only stop to make repairs along the way

until we meet again...in Galilee.
