Poem: Sermon with Ice


Sermon, with Ice

There is ice on the road. Ice on the cars.
Ice falling from the sky.

No one is going anywhere,
and you will spend your day alone

with the woman you love, and two cats.
Nothing to do. No where to go.

You can cut off the phones and celebrate
the wisdom of God,

who obviously knew
just what you needed.

That is my sermon for the day.
A book and blanket call your name.

About this poem

I needed a day off. More than I knew. Today we got ice and freezing rain. No church. God knew what I did not.

But then, that’s how God works.
