You spooked me

Really did

Under that fig tree

As I day-dreamt

Jacob’s ladder images

And you knew of it all

Some sort of hocus-pocus?

Nope just love out-reaching

Free from judgment or agenda

Receiving startling revelation

I know it’s true

Watched you teach

And then walk it out

Town to town.

You surprised me

Said I was a guile-less man

Oh I have seen a stomach-full




Craftily made to look good

Beguiling folks.

But I am for you Lord

Yes happily on board

And learning the delights

God-given friendship.
