Flight

Refuge

Where is safe?

Whence our journey?

With slaughter upon us

flight is needful;

but where?

 

We cannot know why

they chose Egypt

once a place of peril

as their refuge.

 

But needing refuge 

I found in the actions 

of love, my route

and also my guide.

 

We know nothing but they went

and returned, as though 

the intervening time 

was as naught.

 

In refuge, I found not only

love, but redemption.

Judgement was final 

Redemption eternal.

 

Love is not weak, nor blind,

in seeing it needs to be strong

but it endures because love

begets love - and life.
