    Some thoughts from my recent retreat —

    I sit wondering
    who I am,
    who you are,
    wanting to know both more.


    I never suspected


    and to be so painful

    to leave me weeping

    With Joy

    to have met you, alive and smiling, outside an empty tomb

    With Regret

    not because I’ve lost you

    but because I’ve lost you in how I had you –

    in understandable, touchable, kissable, clingable flesh

    not as fully Lord, but as graspably human.

    I want to cling, despite your protest

    cling to your body

    cling to your, and my, clingable humanity

    cling to what we had, our past.

    But I know that…if I cling

    you cannot ascend and

    I will be left clinging to your former self

    …unable to receive your present spirit.

    Steve Karthan

    Beautiful! I was trying to imagine…sure do miss touching the loved ones, which I have lost…Beautifully written.
