An Elegy To Those Who Were There

I’m not the root
just a branch
from a wild olive tree
grafted in and grateful

grateful to those
who were there in the flesh
that physically heard
Jesus speak

and through His breath
The Holy Spirit
passed from His lips
to each Disciple through
the generations

I’m grateful
they took the time to share
His word, His message, His Life
so that one day that breath would cover me

and I would breathe in
the same Holy Spirit
through generations of conversations
told in exhaled breath

and find His Holy Spirit
alive and well
living in me
awaiting this opportunity to exhale
