On the Broken Christ & Gaia – Poem by Mare

On the Broken Christ & Gaia


I have been dogsitting

With the Christ who is

Missing some fingers,

Longing for his healing touch

But only broken ways to beam

Light and Love.

And the dead moth on the

Plastic windowsill quietly

Waiting for the World to End.

So quietly.

With picket fences separating

Me from You, while the

Train cries to the station.

Whose station?

Is there a

Cross at that Station?


I have been dogsitting

With sweetness in big brown

Eyes longing for Love that

Christ could not give with those

Missing fingers from the mantel.

As the gentle family of Latter Day

Saints were gone.

I wondered about their Saints

Wandering by the toys on the

Floor, cooking on the granite

Counters, feeding the gerbil,

Examining the photos of such

Beautiful children.


Hoping their Saints will come

Forward too and Keep the World

From Ending. As

Gaia does her Dance around the Sun,

And I listen.

For the dog at the door.

For Gaia’s kind direction.

For the train that zips,

For my heart to still and


In these tremendously tremulous times,

I trust.

And wonder if Christ will find his fingers to

Lay them into the hand of Gaia to bring Hope and

Light and

Big Love

Wholly on us again?

I trust.
