tumbling act (mark 10:46-52)

not by marching round and round
seven times (or more),
but by simply
standing still;

not in great tumult
or loud curses,
but by a gracious,
welcoming invitation;

not with a parable
or recounting of past
wonders and might,
but by a gentle

the meek find their voice,
blind trust becomes the path to walk,
futures are put at risk,
masks are taken off,
walls fall down

in jericho.
