Up, up, up

points the Spire of the steeple

 

 

I am reminded, 

once more 

of grade school Art class

 

Black shape cut outs

pasted on white poster board 

meant to imitate a city sky line 

 

Which looked nothing like the real thing

because our crayons didn't capture 

rust colored sunsets

 

or thin power lines covered with starlings

also

 

The black steeples, 

both fierce and fragile,

were more earnest than we imagined  

 

 

 



But God's work isn't done by God

It's done by people
