Like diamonds sparkling in the sun,

Simple drops of water gleam.

The sun makes bright this H2O,

Shining brightly, they just seem.



Sparkling as the sun just setting,

I am facing West for certain.

Even before this poem is finished

Evening will drop its curtain.



Night comes fast or my thoughts are slow.

Both, I guess, as composing,

Causing every other line to rhyme, like,

A country-boy proposing.



Do not know why, sure, this country-boy,

Honest while some are not.

Simple and honest, we will allow,

A rustic sort of clout.



John Mark the name, a follower

Of Jesus, but not near.

We, just mingling with the Pharisees,

Spying, it would appear!



It was soon they discovered him.

Jesus was not surprised!

This glance of recognition noticed

By a someone standing by.



John Mark, younger but noticed,

And recognized as one

Who followed Jesus though from afar,

He a Scribes only son.



Who later would rely on this trade to

Write, compile,

An exclusive life of Jesus, the Christ,

After awhile.



But backing to that fearful night,

Of capture by the hoard,

Of Pharisees and soldiers there,

Both with one accord!



When John Mark was recognized by one,

“This lad is one of them, too!”

Saw him there one snatched his cloak.

Fled naked from that zoo.



Of course, a zoo where they all belonged,

As animals trained.

To think and act as animals.

Of sensitivity drained!
