Eternal

Jesus said, “And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.”

Today was my son’s birth day.
Small and soft, he begins to unfurl,
a birthmark smeared beneath one arm;
the closest we come to perfection.
Born between earth and eternity,
the closest we come to God.
