The Breath Of Jesus

(Christchurch shooting, 15-3-19 RIP)
 
‘The Breath of Jesus’
Stems from Surah 5.110 of the Qur’an
In which Jesus makes a model bird out of clay,
And, by breathing upon it, brings it to life.
 
May the Breath of Jesus
Spoken in Christian Bible and Islamic Koran
Take the clay bird of this clay world,
Breath upon it, bring it to new life.

Kia Kaha Aotearoa

(Christchurch shooting, 15-3-19)
 
As is being
expressed
everywhere
in NZ,
 
I feel our
common strength
and desire
to not
 
Let things
like this ‘win’.
 
– – – – –
 
We will all
just take
such a ‘wave’
of violence –
 
And push back!,
and love
a little harder,
prove
 
That the ‘wave’
of Good
is stronger!
 
And more visible
and vocal.
 
Kia kaha Aotearoa.
