Time fulfilled

I love the church year.  It offers a different sense of time than that offered by the secular world we live in.   I saw the homeless man who stood outside of Starbucks, asking for a turkey and Swiss and a cup of coffee, black.  Yesterday he was a part of time fulfilled.  I know there is a new beginning around the corner.

Was a taste
Of time fulfilled.
The children took
Their rightful places
Next to their parents
Received their due
Gifts of God.
They were already
Those Gifts
As were their parents
As was everyone
Present there
In that place.
As was the man
Outside of Starbucks
Who asked for a turkey and swiss
A cup of coffee
Yesterday was a taste
Of time fulfilled.
Next week everything
Begins again.
