dirty little secret

like soot

blackens

a fireplace,

street grime

slushes snow,

seeds riddle

soft, ripe fruit,

hulls wedge

under gums,

rabid dog bites

master’s hand,

 

this all too

human heart

pumps pride,

beats self-interest,

harbors hypocrisy;

deceived to not

realize own guilt

of high treason

against perfect

law of love, and

its gracious author.

The dirty little secret we don’t like to speak of is “sin” (whispered hiss).

    So true, Lynn. But from your other posts, I am guessing that you also believe in the power of love to burst the chains of illusion and to embrace the gracious author. Sometimes, at least.
