Drawn- pondering “The Queue”

A nation mourns,

there are queues,

queues to sign condolence books,

to lay flowers,

to mark respect…

+

The there is THE QUEUE, or Q,

people drawn,

coming together, in pilgrimage,

taking photos, making friends,

connected after so much disconnection,

a catalyst for mourning, and perhaps for healing,

the losses of years, personal, and private losses,

find a focus here….

+

But who is in THE QUEUE,

and who has jumped THE QUEUE?

+

Protocols, expectations, uniform, invitations given and withdrawn,

here, controversy, care, doubts, fears and questions,

rub shoulders…

+

We are joined and divided,

joined and divided,

we are drawn,

to stand in line,

or to watch the line from our sofas,

in quiet fascination…

+

We are connected,

as these days ebb and flow,

finding ourselves held,

by our focus on one,

whose focus transcended deat,

finding a hope in life eternal,

a continuation,

a connection

to the divine….

+

We are joined,

even as we are divided,

in the eternal queue

of life itself…

+

The Queue

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and a grandson). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off!
