Graced glimpses

What is the kingdom like?

A place where our words

Fall short

Where goodness

Kindness and

Decency are

The norm

Are not


A community

Where needs are

Cared for

Where everyone is



For now


Must suffice


The grace of a young woman

Helping with great care and little fuss

An older blind woman

Get off a train


The simple joy

Of young children

As they embrace

Each moment

Of living


The happiness and



By the man

On his daily walk


We’re not there


But such

Graced glimpses

Remind us of

Where we’re headed

With God’s guidance
