make an entrance


Pentecost +22 - Year B

remember your entrance
life has been going on
plots have been laid down
new lines are available

not all is clear
blind spots raise tension
denial blocks opportunities
hope rides on anyway

help is always in order
even as it is out of order
clenched teeth are one option
calling out another

the needy call out the healthy
will they be left to beg
will mercy be chosen
will partnership die aborning

the world stands still
as pre-existing conditions
meet new occasions
and spin off new duties

what is your claim
your analysis of need
what is your gift
your mercy quotient

to see past a script
to see again for a first time
to edit the present
to revision the future

hark - a new line
shifts settled plots
from tragedy to comedy
remember to enter
