what the priest missed


Lent 5 - Year C

what the priest missed

one life
is not enough

69 years, 5 months, 22 days
has layers of lives

evening and morning
an arc is approximated

so many Lazarus cycles
like starry sand

come and gone
gone and come

near as breath
far as blue yonder

another is ready
to be collaged

each one
a challenge

easier internally
for puzzlers

for privileged
threatened danger

enough lives
show poverty

so few lives
in an eternity

Lazarus is a means test
revealing the poor among us

choose beauty
choose thanks

these bring life
in their wake

awakening anew
a next birth
