The broad picture shows in wide angle
Many loves, many places, over time
God seen broadly,
Infiltrating every inch, each universal angle,
love of all, created by his words.
Narrowly focused lens, reveals
loves in time for this time,
God in Christ close-up,
deeds revealed, love unfettered
words of life, giving selflessly,
one living thing to another.
Close up lens pointing laser-like
in particularity to a love now,
God’s Spirit inspiring the moment,
a sacrament to the holy:
God with us, Emmanuel.
