Healing

Not only pain
but Christ feels our healing, too.
It’s that rush of power he spoke of
when a woman brushed his robe.
It’s that dazzle of light
that surprised both the blind man
and those who saw him healed.

Not only pain
but Christ feels our healing, too.
It’s that charge of strength
in the lame man’s walk.
It’s the shock of touch
in the leper’s hands.
It’s those chariots of fire
racing up the backbone,
carrying us home.
