day 51

Such is the company of those
         who seek him,
   who seek the face of the
         God of Jacob.  Psalm 24:6

in the little kids
who read to
      the cats and dogs
      at the no-kill shelter;
in the teenagers
gathering up blankets
         for those who
   sleep on the streets;
in the retirees
who travel the country
   as Mr. and Mrs. Claus
   to visit children in hospitals;
in all who do more
      than all the attention
      seekers ever accomplish,
we discover the
we should keep.
