NEW BIRTH

Awaiting the birth,pondered deeply what my role would be;In time telescoped I see generic man,Issue of revelation's womanhood:The child is free.Old Testament conceived identity in embryo,Receiving strengthIn Sara's case to be delivered lateOf progeny presignifyingBirth of the Son of man.But seed of AbrahamSought to kill Mary's sonWhoCalling Lazarus forthHimselfGently emerged from tombAnd womb!This child is free.As Mary saw,So must I see the child of Spirit:No birth,No death,No parturition processEver or now.In Spirit's way, a child of God is free.
