The Pattern of Redemption

by | Sep 22, 2021 | Uncategorized

It’s not good we say
Things are very bad
Are we just observers
Of things that make us sad …

“He shouldn’t, nor should she”
Thoughts usher from our mind
Conclusions that are hard-wired
And easy enough to find

The dark ages long ago
Had a singular foundation
Faith and hope were lost
Judgment sacrificed creation

Faith and hope find homage (*1)
In a heart and mind uncluttered
By conclusions drawn and quartered
And negativity unmuttered

Yet, everything’s a process
And negativity has it place
Collected from our history
The baggage that we’ve faced

A part we play together
In making the kettle clean
By addressing ourselves and others
With intent to pluck and preen (*2)

Intention carries a heavy weight
According to the law
So, as embodied spirits
We must hear it as our call

To observe and see what’s out there
And realize it lives within
Then forgive our participation
In believing it a sin

A sin, says Mary Baker Eddy
Constitutes erroneous thinking
Cutting off our connection
Our power thus is shrinking

Remember Jesus assertion
Where two or more are gathered
Asking in my name
Creation will be slathered (*3)

From a Christian ear to ear
Think of what you’re saying
Intention behind the words
You’ll find someday betraying.



(*1) Homage: honor, respect

(*2) Preen: to clean (as a bird preens itself with its beak)

(*3)Slathered: a lot of, abundance, like slathering a sandwich with a lot
of mayonnaise.

Grandma Linda is a squigily peg in a square hole. Her poetry is aimed at moving the world to love, unity and perfect margaritas. And after years of perfecting the art, she has the skill to paint a better world and make it so.

When she is not serving customers, gazing at rocks, or visiting her grandchildren Linda is writing poetry. And even during all the above activities she has been known to write still.
