Agape

A short way into the journey we forget
who we are, where we came from
where we are headed
acting as though
we know

Remembering is both familiar and surprising
each return tinged by a sense of déjà vu
it was here we sprang from
without a past or future
just now

drinking from a well in the desert
a spring of living water in wilderness
swimming far from oceans in a living sea
one and many delighting in this body
grateful

Making Believe does not bring Truth closer

Opening hearts and minds
to rivers flowing from mountains to seas
and through the air from seas to mountains
and to green living leaves and desert sand awakening
to set us free from the worlds in which we believe
so we might choose what heals and furthers
this communion of life
may

Anointed love
awake love, full of truth
guide your children
in the way of the holy spirit
delivering us from kings and priests
oppressors and predators
violence and cruelty
evil and indifference

So we may flourish
in loving kindness and compassion
knowing the joy of your presence
here with us in creation

We, the people

Hear us, worldly powers
surrender to the will of the people
all the people
not just some of the people
all the people

Listen
hear what we are saying
and meet our needs
for we are the reason you exist
and you have lost the way

The time of atonement is now
and nothing is too big to fail or fall
you are facing dissolution and transformation
people realize you are a destructive illusion
subject to our acceptance or rejection

We, the people
accept responsibility for your existence
we are making amends to our mother’s body
the air, the water, the earth, the fires of life
creating alternatives your the rule of power over
