Thought

Can there be love if there’s hate?

Can love exclude, push or shove?

As long as enemies there berate

Or wish them ill, there is no love


Can we offer love when struck?

Or offer a watch-thief a clock?

Wavering not on whim or luck

Real love’s steady, not ad hoc


What blocks this pouring out?

A fragile ego’s reference point

Attacking shadows for to rout

Will them entrench and re-anoint


But walk in faith to glorious sun

Beauty beheld in pouring grace

Shadows obediently come along

Supreme shines as love’s embrace


Prayer

O Lord, fill me with thy beauty, destroy my selfish love. Let me catch Thy breath and glide effortlessly on Thy wings.
