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.
