The Fidget Spinner*

The good Father held a
fidget spinner in his hand —
three parts in static form.
The fun had not begun.
Then he spun the fidget
and the three became one.
The spinning fidget —
metaphor for relationship,
the nature of God.
Is my fidget spinning
in relationship to the Three-In-One,
have I become part of the One,
have I always been
part of the One?
When I’m only with my lonely one,
spin me, O Lord, into dynamic
love with everything
and everyone.

*idea from a short video by Richard Rohr
