Just When He Started Feeling Sorry For Himself

Just when he started feeling sorry
for himself and the resentments
began to simmer before the
eventual boil,
two really wonderful, serendipitous,
seemingly synchronistic things
happened to make his knee-
jerk reaction recoil.
Once again, being caught by surprise,
he thought how much his life
is a life unwise not realizing
grace comes without toil.
It’s a gift, stupid, he said to himself
and in this case two. And then he
thought, grace is a gift of a
garden growing in fertile soil.
