Pentecost +22 A

invitations to life

invitations to life
banquets galore
come and come
in the midst of distractions
and other calls

anger for being asked
matches anger
at invitations refused
and on anger's unstable ground
we blindly build

unspoken expectations
thinking all is resolved
rear their heads
and lead into another round
of off with their heads

a heavenly presence
is like a wedding
but one without trappings
just joy in relationship
that radiates an excellent harmony
