Nails and Spikes


Nails
and spikes,
a carpenter
and for him
the forged metal 
does his will,
splintering the wood.

Created
are wooden tables
and chairs,
crosses
and sacrifices
and a new faith
alive 
with grace.

Nails
and spikes,
a man of simplicity
speaking words 
longed for,
to ears deaf
to the voice of a new 
covenant.
