Pentecost +11 C


divide their assets
multiply mine


guard against greed
anticipate abundance


back and forth
we dignify dualities


it is time to move on
beyond even both


generous compassion
recognizes neither


we are one
and not done



or not

do not be afraid, y'all
a good pleasure of the universe
is present
ready or not

this treasure tugs
at our heart and hearts
anticipating only readiness
like it or not

much has been given
entrusted even
much is to be given
required or not

no solemn assembly
can avoid harm and do good
no ritualized offering determines
justice or not

beauty shines forth
honor replaces sacrifice
health is purposeful
thanks given or not

this moment clarifies hope
expanding love well beyond faith
toward a preferred future
seen or not

gazing into Sagan numbered stars
digging a deep and firm foundation
conjures promises and possibilities
prepared or not
