Feed Tend Heal


Easter 3 - Year C 

questioning
another’s identity
is a never-ending game

your claim
of your experience
has no connecting spot with me

instead of
entertaining another angel
i can but counter-claim you’re wrong

there is little
that will free us
from our privilege

so tempting
so addictive
me and my and mine

past
relationships
mean nothing here

current
life-stories
are not convincing

dreams
of a new earth
run aground on my limits

miracles are needed here
three at least
and quickly

these miracles appear
in commonplace
partnerships

only be ready to see anew
to tend to feed to heal
everyone anyway

while unready to go there
here crops up
surprise

while surprised
we kindly say
welcome

and a miracle happens
in honoring your identity
my identity is firmly grounded

eyes are opened
hearts are extended
community is deepened

tu casa es mi casa
your cause is is not yours alone
there is enough to tenderly feed one another

abundant grace
how sweet the life
that joins me with you
