On the subway

pressed together
reaching up for the straps
lurched alike
hands in the air
all these faces
trying not to touch
so many stories silent
all of us reaching up
choosing our way
not saying what
so deeply we hope
borne along
on the way to somewhere
together on this train
leaving what we have left
secretly longing
all of us reaching
borne along.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
