Darkness and Light

There was a man who came to Jesus in the black of night.
Jesus said ‘I will tell you how the old can be born again.’
The man said ‘Thank you, but that’s not why I came.
Tell me, Rabbi, where does the sadness come from?’
 
When Jesus heard this he marveled at such great humanity.
The two men then sat shadowed, side by side in the quiet
manner of men, looking ahead into what seemed an eternity.
Jesus was repeatedly tempted to words but he knew they would 
 
only vandalize the truth. So he endured until the dawn broke
in its customary high and handsome style. The man said
‘Thank you’ as birds began to tilt into the salient of sunlight.
And Jesus was reminded why God so loved the world.
