The Creation is Meant for Connection

Father, Son, Holy Spirit,
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer,
Proton, Electron, Neutron
Quark and two others
yet to be discovered.

The creation is meant for
connection to be in relation,
but we are in isolation
looking for re-connection
in all the wrong places,
filling spaces with disgraces –
entitlements and envy,
chasing after money,
racism, jingoism, nativism,
ageism, discrimination,
sexual exploitation,
finger-pointing, misogyny,
love only for whitey,
violence soaring resulting
in society falling down,
down, down.

Everywhere but on our knees
imploring the connection that
comes in threes:

Father, Son, Holy Spirit,
Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer,
Proton, Electron, Neutron
Quark and two others
yet to be discovered.

It’s already there —
life is already a loving relation.
There is the connection.
We are all one race
looking to embrace
the love in each other’s face.
We live by grace.

Yes, we all come out of Africa
dispersed throughout the world
resulting in a holy diversity
but always in unity.

So let us live with justice, mercy,
love and peace
greeting every one we meet
with SHALOM, SALEM, SALAAM, a bow
before the dignity of Thou.
