Explaining the Walk by Raymond A. Foss

Trying, without real success,
explaining the Walk to Emmaus
what it has meant to me,
the love I felt, the change it made
differences on levels I cannot explain
a closeness with God, with my savior
with my brothers in Christ
I never imagined; but cannot quantify
in words that are enough
Like the parables of Christ,
like the words the Apostle Paul
in that wonderful chapter
in the letter to the Corinthians,
I can explain only in part
in dull human words;
nowhere near the heavenly grace
that rained on me there

Walk to Emmaus
