Threads of the Prophets by Raymond A. Foss

Their two lives, cousins of the flesh
both parts of the history of the people
threads of the prophets, unraveling,
in the days of their lives, coming together
woven, grafted, one to the other,
the voice crying out, the one for whom he cries
together in that moment, actors, witness
standing in the Jordan, under the eye of God
washed by the current, the moving, living water
together, in the dying, the rising, the tearing open
of the fabric of heaven, the sky, the clouds,
a glimpse of the kingdom to come
the living heaven, the Spirit falling,
resting, anointing him for ministry
fulfilling the one of the one calling
the voice of God, his love, pouring down
affirming the Son of Man, stitching his life
to his destiny, his life no longer unknown
his days to be written, step by step
his life a tapestry, living out the prophets,
fulfilling his role, thread by thread
