Thursday Afternoon

A Thursday afternoon and I am sitting at my desk
as the clock ticks out the moments,
the furnace churns in steady rhythm
and the cars pass purposely by.

Another Thursday afternoon
when what I do is what I am
and where I am is where I am to be.

But the how and the why are hidden
‘tween facts of life and death,
loss and pain
or is it theology and psychology?

Yet through this window
lies wisdom only to be found
on the other side of this pane
in perfectly full view.

And so, in honor of peepers,
robins, sunsets and all the
varied and magnificent
wonders of this Earth
which teach, challenge, frame
and enhance our lives,
I offer these words.
