Respecting the awesome power of words!

Unconditional

IMG_1307

When we've had a bate
of human-to-human interaction,
when hurt and frustration
have burned up the highway
in and from all directions,

when up is no longer
distinguishable from down,
or right from wrong,
send your canine, feline, equine,
and other species of saints,
IMG_1197
O Lord, to mirror holy listening,
sacred silence, and unconditional love
for us, so that we
may still, sit, scratch,
and pet ourselves back

into our niche in creation's order,
instead of stowing-away
to an uninhabited island.
