The Wall Has Come Down

A haiku response to Sunday's readings, inspired by Ellen Charry's 7 word gospel.

The Wall Has Come Down

Knowledge is power,
So we all loathe the Gossip.
Except when it's us.

Does power give life
Or destroy, and by whose word?
Illusion masks truth.

Devils with answers
Paintings of ourselves some days,
Fearing those same selves.

The tree he carries
Plants him extinguished and deep
"Forgive, they know not."

What hope for him, us -
Considering all that is?
There, here, love opens.
