May I hear You Call

May I hear You call

"I'll give you a call," she said

And she never did.

"There is no call for you to do this"

he said - embarrassed by assistance.

"People are calling for his resignation"

was the pressure-pumping headline.

And so this calling is on-going

part and parcel of the truth of life

It can be experience or action

It can be internal or external

It can be gentle or abrupt

It can be gifted or giving..

Spirit of the Calling

open my ears to hear the many callings

in and through this day where I come to know

the only call that matters:

to live with grace and truth

and in the ways of love
