Allowing Good Things to Happen

Paul closed his eyes and walked on water.
He walked on the sandy bottom.

His belief in denial was not strong enough.
Gravity applied itself.

Paul did not seek to appropriate a miracle.
He sought to replicate Christ’s love.

He discounted his gentle rejection of Christianity
as a cause for his failure.

That religious dismissal did not prevent
the spiritual manifestation of grace.

Maybe the bestowed blessings
assumed a different form than imitation.
