To cull and glean

To cull and glean                                                                                               

Jesus performed miracles. 
Curious that word performed,

its theatrical connotation,
a mesmerized crowd attracted

and then love let loose to cull and glean
those with ears to hear;

to winnow out those drawn to power,
to avoidance of the necessity

of suffering and surrender.
Only one miracle, claimed my Lord –

to alter the human heart into submission,
the switch from power to love.

O child of God, put this realm behind you
by seeking the unparalleled majesty of love.
