re.

i.
Re-newed—
made new again.
But not, right?
Not new.
Re-newed.

ii.
Creation
is most popularly considered
out of nothing (ex nihilo).
God spoke
and where there was not,
and had not been,
there was.

Re-creation, though,
is a new creation out of me—
out of who and what and how I am.
God speaks
calling me into a new way of being,
and I am either co-re-creator
or am as I have been.

iii.
Some broken bones,
too long untreated,
have to be re-broken
to be made straight.
So, in our broken world,
are we willing to be re-broken
to be made whole?
To be re-stored? Re-plenished?
Re-newed? Re-created?
To be re-deemed?
