Emmaus Road Memory


Photo credit:


Israel Pilgrimage—1986


A field of big, bodacious sunflowers

seem to be a great cathedral choir

singing the Hallelujah Chorus

with exultation

while sun-shining millions

of dazzling petal spires upon us

along Emmaus Road


It is fitting

because I am ablaze

with Jesus-joy

to be here


as I think about my newly

Resurrected Lord, vanishing

at the very breaking

of the bread


astonishing the disciples

who sat with Him

at table


Those utterly bewildered disciples

whose hearts thumped

and blazed

with glory fire

as He walked with them

as He explained to them

the Holy Scriptures


2000 years ago


along this very road
