Heart Seeker

Jesus did not provoke it

It was already there

Their silent non-acceptance

In their cold hard stare


Jesus simply named it

Prophets not welcome here

Then they rose in anger

Get him out of here


How come he’s so clever

Just lives down the road

Old man Joe the carpenter

Who’s he trying to goad


We only see the surface

We do not see within

The spiritual life of others

Is hidden from our ken


But if we welcome others

Gifts to us they bring

Open up the heart’s ways

Let the other in
