what if…. (Lent Day 1)

what if there were only deep, listening love,

love, when the voices that discourage are stilled,

within and without,

love, permeating everything,

flowing through the cracks,

filling the gaping holes

in our understanding,


what if we stilled ourselves long enough to catch

loves subtle harmonies,

running through the war torn streets,

an act of true defiance,


breaking down barries,

embracing diversity,


what if love were our source,

if love were our guide,

how would we live in the world?

What if we turned today

to look up, not down,

to rejoice, for we are loved,

in all of our frail vulnerabilities…

what if the only obedience required of us

is to listen to, and follow
