Into Thin Air

And it came to pass, while he blessed them, he was parted from them, and carried up into heaven. Luke 24:51

When He vanished
this is how it happened,
a thinning of the atmosphere
above and around Him,
a siphoning wind from the sky
lifting Him away.

We eleven, so attentive,
hung on His every word
as He had hung on ours.

We were ready.
Yet the suddenness
surprised our faith.
We wanted to be forewarned
and see it all again.
We would be prepared
next time.
