Awkward Conversation

"Do you really believe that Jesus
will return
on a white horse
flying down from the sky?"

Thinking this was so ridiculous
that it would be easy common ground.


"Yes. Yes I do.
He said he would come back,
and riding a white horse
and we'd see him in the sky."

Conversation footing lost,
not sure where to go from here.


How is the horse flying?
We know heaven is not above the clouds:
Where is it coming from? Orbit?
"Couldn't this have some metaphorical
meaning?"

waiting.

"Some things are beyond our understanding.
I have faith that every word in the bible is true.
So even if it doesn't make sense to me,
it makes sense to god and will happen just as stated."

"But we know about horses and that they need to breath.
That isn't beyond our understanding"
Unless, this is a divine horse. Pegasus maybe?
