protection

Year B - Easter 7 or Assurance 7

protection

so many schemers — so few resources
so many paths to prosperity — so little common wealth
so many anonymous commenters — so small the thoughts

delighted those who see abundance
rejoicing those who experience community
happily blessed those engaged in creativity

re-view an oasis
with ripened fruit
in desert-ed space

see yourself
choosing refreshing
hospitality anyway

storms blow up threatening every refugee
storms named after every variant of vice
storms denied by what shelter is given

gazelle or hyena
a food chain continues
without privileging one

denounced wicked
claimed righteous
re-view
