Water and Wine

Water and Wine

it is a 
matter of belief 
a religious persuasion
that the conversion
was a miracle
marking a tribe..

 might we find
an expression of
this astonishing story
for a more universal

to his mother
he was direct:
that his hour had
not yet come..
how we ask is
this related to
the rest of the story..

 stands forth as our
 essence divine..
for all experience
for lives seeming
to be separate..
the Cana conversion
calmly asserts: wine
is made of water..

 a new hour
will know suffering
born of fear and desire
a forgetting of Cana..
 wine is resurrected 
 recognized as water
our essence clarified
as a miracle unveils...

(ref:  John 2: 1-11)
