and it is evening

Pentecost +10 - Year C

and it is evening

wise or not
this night
begins another day
today's soul
is laid to rest

all we have prepared
is laid to rest
our judgments
our lack thereof
is laid to rest

wise or not
all together
Ephraim Israel
Admah Zeboiim
are laid to rest

compassion continues
and steadfastness
brings old sorrows
home to be
laid to rest

wise or not
gather to offer
thanks beyond measure
and even this
is laid to rest

thirsty lands
hungry people
satisfied
fallow
laid to rest

wise or not
seekers above
greedy for glory
and entitlement
are laid to rest

lies rest
anger wrath malice
slander abuse
are laid to rest
for an eighth day
