watercolour Jesus

Water glides across the paper
colour on brush
forms Jesus
holding a teddy bear

I don't know what it means
with death looming over her
perhaps she's looking for comfort
in spirituality
or perhaps I'm reading too much
into questions I don't know how to ask
because I'm too scared
to truly want the answers

This moment is peaceful for her
paint on paper
Jesus holds a teddy bear
unfinished between the pages of a book

Perhaps it's a symbol
or a metaphor
or a hope for miracles
that aren't coming

Water glides across the paper
colour on brush
makes a painting
I'm reading to much into

I wonder if Jesus
ever owned a teddy bear
