Rock Our World By Aida Bode

Posted: May 30, 2015 in Uncategorized

I wonder if Jesus ever thought of a rocking chair,
if he’d make one for his Father,
instead of the throne,

I wonder if he’d rock on it and if the world
would be different.

A calm God, going back and forth
enjoying the work of his only son
and deciding he mustn’t die
but make more chairs.

More chairs for all humans to sit,
some of their pets, too –
or all the pets, wild beasts and plants.

relaxing and swinging;

back and forth
back and forth
