day 106

Once Jesus was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was coming, and he answered, "The kingdom of God is not coming with things that can be observed;"  Luke 17:20

the kingdom comes
   not with power
         but with those
         who listen to 
      the meek;
   not with loud shouts,
         but with children
         whispering hope in
      each others' ears;
   not with the cold
   reality of death,
         but with the
         unexpected joy
      of an empty grave.
