Wrapped

Wrapped in sleeping bag, blankets
surrounded by back packs, sacks
no recognizable feature showing

Motionless, on the ground, under the bench in the corner of the bus shelter

This is a person
created by the loving Father-God
in His image

Knitted together with care, skill, supernatural dexterity

Yet, at this point in this person’s life
decisions, resources, circumstances are such that
this spot, on the ground, under the bench in the corner of the bus shelter

Offers the best choice of places to sleep, catch some precious rest before being told to move along

I’m thankful for eyes to see, urge to pray
this day in some tangible way, Father-God,
please show up for real to this person –

One of the works of Your fingers – and provide true lasting rest.
