The What and Who of Meandering About

On Bended Knees

Driven to her knees in guilt.
Sin hidden in tears
That stain the ground
Dampen his sandaled feet.
Repentant heart poured out.
Rising
Forgiven; free.

Driven to her knees in sorrow.
Hopelessness disguised in tears
 That stain the wood
Dampen his crucified feet.
Maternal heart shattered.
Rising
Frightened; alone.

Driven to her knees in joy.
Realization bathed in tears
That stain the path
Dampen his resurrected feet.
Human heart aflame.
Rising
Convinced; transformed.

Driven to her knees in prayer.
Hope revealed in tears
That stain the pew
Dampen his sacred feet.
Congregating hearts united.
Rising
Called together; sent out.
