“Love does no wrong to a neighbor;” Romans 13:10b

that neighbor whose
yard signs drive us nuts;
whose political views
send chills down our spines;
who is always ready
for an argument
at the drop of a red hat?
imagine our surprise
when they are the ones
dropping off casseroles
after surgeries,
mowing lawns while
we are out of town;
slipping a valentine
into our mailbox
when we are not looking
