A Poem by Jnana Hodson


for minutia and large
flowing creation

and homing
family, mystery within walls
around our bedding

wealth beyond cash
            and clutter
overabundance of opportunities
            to engage

any strength generously

distinguishing between gifts
            and hard-earned wealth
and everything seized from others

remembering greed
bondage and
gluttony all entangle

            yet if we love liberally
this sojourn
exposing each deception
                      in relentless light

reunion . reconciliation
            uttered utterly
forgives . accepts
corrects . and gives again

Jnana Hodson’s chapbook, Harbor of Grace, was issued in August 2012 by Fowlpox Press. The author of two published novels, he blogs at Jnana’s Red Barn (jnanahodson.net).
