12th March 2017 – Lent 2A

(John 3:1-17)
Nicodemus came
at night, alone, in the dark,
to speak with Jesus.

Who was this Teacher,
speaking profoundly of life,
in seeming riddles?

Being born again,
grown old but born from above.
How can these things be?

Nicodemus left
in the dark, at night, alone
and still not seeing.

The Spirit, unseen,
blows through our lives like the wind
that we might yet see.
