GLIMPSE IN AWE THE GLORY

A sacredness apart, realizing finally
who we are, humbled by the knowledge
separated for a moment to glimpse
in awe the glory, purpose of creation
as clouds scatter, broken in sunlight
to see the shabbiness of our goings;
baseness of our speech; greediness
of getting’s; shallowness of seeking’s;
emptiness of empathies; selfishness
of giving’s; bounty of receiving’s;
accumulation of debt; mercy requiring
meekness; atonement paying what is mete.
