Advent 13


The Word became flesh…
(John 1:14)

Before the scars on his
hands, and feet, and side;
the scar of his
umbilicus.

Before the scars
of Death,
The scar
of Life.

  1. Can't believe no one has commented on THAT! Is that yours mate? Well I hope it isn't your Mrs! Enough to put me off my tea!

    Mind you every good series has to have it's low point!

  2. This isn't my low point, it's my mid-point...

    'My Mrs' asked me whether I didn't think that a photo of our four month old baby's belly-button might have been more appropriate? But that would have been a bit cute - I was aiming more for the grittiness of the story.

    Sorry about you tea, though.

  4. Interesting, I have a four month old too - must have been the weather?
