Respecting the awesome power of words!



Sometimes, the odds
overwhelm Murphy,
and unimagined goodness
breaks out in places
it’s least expected;

or at least that’s how
the cynical read it.

Those of us writing
in the font of grace
know differently, but
even if there’s no listening
in the here and now,

it still soaks into our skin,
a little at a time; and
when we become saturated
or marinated enough,
we’ll know, too.

Until then, I’ll keep
watching and writing.
