A Woman Bleeds

The woman
betrayed by blood
life force bringing death.
In desperation,
flings herself
into the dust
upon His mercy.
Stretching, reaching
that one finger tip
might brush a single strand
of His cloak.
That power may leap
from the sanctified to the sinful,
to wash her, clean her
with His own blood.
And not because she touched,
not because of
any
physicality
but by her faith,
her ardent desire
to reach Him.
