While he was still a long way off....






Inspired by tomorrow's gospel (Luke 15: 11-32), a story of inexhaustible love.
While he was still a long way off
a heart leapt for joy
an arm raised in welcome
feet danced in abandon
hands twitched to embrace
While he was still a long way off
hurt feelings were repaired
anxious thoughts were calmed
tears of sadness
gave way to smiles of joy
While he was still a long way off
eyes tired from constant hopeful staring
were crinkled with laughter
words repressed and under-used
were released in whooping circles
shoulders slumped in resignation
once more rose proud and tall
While he was still a long way off
Everything changed
And yet nothing was different
Only that the irrepressible flow of love
was once more released and recognised
While he was still a long way off.
