sacred harp

the heart
   that is broken,
the town square
   where justice is sought,
the baseball diamond
   where kids learn teamwork,
the skating oval
   filled with families,
the circle of friends
   singing carols to neighbors,
the triangle of the snow plow
   clearing the streets –
you use the shape notes
of our lives, Imaginative One,
   to compose your songs
   of grace and hope.
