the kingdom

the kingdom                                    January 30, 2015
could it be
that we will pave our streets in gold
when we have done away
with the love of money
and gold is only
another mineral
pretty and pleasing
to be shared by all eyes
but worthless
when all His creatures
have enough and are
sated with the necessities
to live and His love

when coins are not good
for coffers or charity
they will make beautiful
sidewalks as aggregate
in the cement
copper and silver
bronze and gold
turning green in the weather
or polished by thousands
of dancing feet

all people
are God’s people
no one
will be left out
from the kingdom
on earth
or in heaven

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
