A Tribute

Epiphany 2 - Year C

just when you think
folks have been recruited
plans have been laid
there’s another call

we are invited 
to step outside
our expectations
to detour

the expectations
of others loom large
and we choose
mutual concern or no

o - we might dither
look for more information
but ultimately
we choose

to choose a detour
and then to deepen it
can feel like a betrayal
of recruits and plans

to choose a detour
and then to deepen it
can open a shortcut
confirming recruits and plans

and so we choose
to make Thunderbird
or Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon
and are defined

water to wine
magician work
good wine
moves us on

so many calls
so many gifts
alloted activated
for common use

let us pause in life’s pleasures
raise a glass of good wine
sup sorrow with the poor
and bid hard times go
