quote worth its salt

Quote taken from Matthew 5:13. A quadrille linked to dVerse Poets.

______________

Jesus said to his followers…

       his words should pique our imagination

“You are the salt of the earth.”

       necessary for culture’s preservation

“But if salt loses its savor…”

       to enhance flavor without reservation

Can it be salty again?

       without salt, rot is final destination.

    Yes, we will be pretty useless if we are not salt and light. The world needs this.
