Beginning for Sunday

July 14, 2017

The light had only just slipped into the day.
It lay across the Galilee lake
flat and yellow
disturbed only where a fisher’s boat
disturbed the edge
between water and light;

there the colours rippled and flashed
as nets were hauled in,

but there were no silver darlings;
no catch today

and turning towards the land once more
light on their backs
and faces heavy with shadow
reflecting the world
dull now Jesus was gone,

the growing sunrise
lit a man on the beach
with a familiar gait
and a fire
broken bread
and charcoaled fish;

and there was a chink in their minds:

was this just a trick?

Of the light,
or of heaven?
