26 April 2016


I grace, you grace ~ a word to use instead
of pray.  Why not?  Its ESS lingers longer  
than A and WHY, its essence is less known
and, therefore, less debatable.  We share
God’s grace, by The Grace of Mystery, no
matter how you name That Which is Greater
Than Will and Moment, You, Me and All.

Gratitude and gracefulness both start
with grace. Probably forgiveness does, too.
Creativity and Fulfillment and Love
all start with Grace regardless of their sound—
their truth so much more important than mere
plain graciousness, a word twisted to seem
more than our kind, kindness and grace appeal.

This is April's poem 26.

*Note:  All April poem-a-day poems are rough drafts awaiting revision.
