Meeting the Man

I met Jesus, once. 
Did you know that? 

It's true. 

We met in a space 
of timelessness
and formlessness
where He stood beside a gate
and invited me in.  

It wasn't any old gate
you know
it was particular
and real
and I went inside and
He closed it behind me. 

Aren't you coming?
I asked Him. 
No, He said,
I have more work to do. 

And He smiled at me gently
and left, 
just as simple 
as that.
