Having Heard About Jesus


And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years.

…She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak. (Mark 5:24—25, 27)

Isolated and alone

Woman of blood

pours herself towards

the fabric of life.

Dewdrop of hope

slips down the thread

to the woman

with outstretched hands.
