Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

When the Walls Fell Down

It is the sweet simple things in life
which are the real ones after all
Laura Ingall Wilder

I walked in to a corporate boiler room today

Rows of cubicles with people tethered to phones

clicking at keys

Desks cluttered with mementos to keep them attached to life

I imagined the room empty

Soundless and bare walls

until the walls fell away

And vines grew up around me

And birdsong filled the air

and I wanted to share what I saw

but the people in the cubicles

never looked up
and the walls once more closed in

let your mind go beyond the walls
and that's poetiquejustis
Now the LORD God had planted a garden in the east,
 in Eden; and there he put the man he had formed.
                                                                        Genesis 2:8
