Loving Kindness

take this bread and cup
all that thirst
all that are imprisoned
come to me

all that thirst
beyond the false satiety
at the corner store

all that are imprisoned
by walls named
poverty and circumstance

come to me
and receive

~Terri Stewart, January 2011 

Today we were asked by Christine Valters Paintner at Abbey of the Arts to meditate on fierceness and to create a poem reflective of fierceness.  Two such meditations popped out.  This is one and here is the other.

    A song to call the prodigal children home might fall on deaf ears. There is too much competition. The children might be distracted by sins for a season, the beautiful sights and sounds of the city, or just the yearning to see and hear something different.

    I like this poem...to be known and known tenderly, to be invited. Love it actually.

      Thank you. Maybe it is tender loving kindness. I like the tenderness.
