Sorry It's Sunday #21 Poem a Day (religious content)

Sorry It's Sunday

Sometimes it takes clawing
and scraping
to find inspiration
to write a poem daily.
Sunday is easy, I choose at least
this day of the week to listen
to my God
through His Word.

"We are His people, the sheep of his flock."
this week the people are defined,
"from every nation, race, people, and tongue."
Why can't the heads of His church hear His Words?
Why can't the heads of His church listen to their own words?

Vatican II Chapter II The People of God
L1 "At all times and in every race, anyone who fears God and does what is right has been acceptable to Him." 

I just wanted to write a simple poem from my meditation of the Sunday scripture. But that keeps coming back to a subject bothering me for a few months.

To be honest Tink I don't think the story comes through into the poem: the understanding of both sides, the forgiveness, the choices made, the avenues for change. One for a future write perhaps!

Thanks Badge, I agree. I knew I was missing the mark and I am not so sure I am ready to really tackle the incident head on in poetry. I just wanted to create a small poem from meditation of the readings of the day. But the readings keep taking me back there. I have met with parishioners and had a one on one with the pastor. I guess the next step is the bishop, but I don't know this bishop. It is so complicated.

Badge is right about the PARTICULAR story not coming through, but those of us who, even just from the periphery, follow religious events in GENERAL can discern your intent.

 

And Bravo to you for being concerned.
