Even as babies
before we can talk
we stretch out our arms & hands
and reach for what we desire.

In lockdown
with technology: electricity to computer
over wires
over phone lines
through the vast emptiness of the air
and in ways I cannot understand
we reach out, 
see and hear each other.

But at any time, in every time,
the connections of the heart,
not needing electricity or phone lines
or a 5G network,
need only love ~ 
a space in my heart for you
one in yours for me. 

And, Jesus, that baby in the stable,
reaches out for us all
connecting us with love.
