There’s Still Time for a new year

You are what you hear;
bottle nosed whales slide
into an ocean of blues
as rain fresh mint and ferns whip
the coastal bluff.

The Shepherd whistles
to turn your head.
Facts and faith
a jumble of Scrabble letters.
We spell ourselves, face down.

It’s possible to have the Christ
in ways unbelievable
to believers, but
to believe He has us,
that’s worth baking bread.
