Sunday School

Sunday School
That day you learn a lesson
Supposed to last all week
and really for
all of your life.

And Sundays we get to do what we did not get to
last week,
and look forward
we hope
to
next week.

Sun Day,
day of the Sun
our Father in the Universe,
every day we find out is smaller.

Sundays like Today,
Bright sunny warm and we are
Free
within the confines of survival things like cleaning,
eating, tending the cats,
Every once in awhile
glancing up at a bird or
getting a whiff of a lilac blossom
just before it falls,
or a bee buzzing
merrily.

Sundays,
a good day to contemplate those less fortunate
or more afraid,
or hopeless, helpless, hapless.

Sunday school confused me often,
the tales too complex,
not relevant,
not
like the poor we had among us,
the fear, the discrimination,
intimidation,
coercion,
domination,
the
Power
over
another.

Sundays are a good day to reflect on your blessings
Count them, they are there.
Focus on them,
you must.

  1. Well said and so true! I do from time to time forget to count my blessing. That's when I realize just how truly fortunate I am.
