Reckoning

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         
         
         

All the greatest things you have done,
with those of all the masters,
are little purple berries
on the end of bare branches
that songbirds come and eat
and then migrate far,
strong and beautiful.

                  •

All the mistakes you ever made
fall like leaves and rot
in God’s good dark earth
until, after time and regret
and a winter of letting go,
it all becomes rich, black soil.

         
         
Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
