Sonnet: Gave Direction Up


Recorded Reading: (0:55):


Gave Direction Up

I spoke, and I was heard constructively
In the good spirit of my words’ intent —
No misunderstanding destructively
Obscured the message which they by were meant

Now let me think — what was the difference
Between it and another choice of word
Permits my intended beneficence
By the receiver clearly to be heard?

Remembering, first, humbly ‘twas I asked
That wisdom might descend those words into
And, having done that, after, I relaxed
And let the truth of love come shining through

Perhaps ‘twere my mere feet that pathway trod —
I gave direction of them up to God
