Jesus in the Desert

How long to get over the hunger?
How long for the heat?
            -the burning sun
            - the cool cold nights
Was there any feeling of being lost, abandoned?
And when you discovered of your father,
that he was the same as you,
did you rejoice, dance, sing, pray
did you simply walk back to Jerusalem
to get something to eat?

  1. This is a very humanizing poem. If Jesus were not mentioned in the title, it could be any young man discovering the reality of a difficult father.
