Spiritual Traffic


Don’t walk!
Or is it drive?
Where are you going?
To the green space across the street
to share an ice cream cone with your dog?
To work at a grocery store?
No car, so you need to walk?
Are you on your way back home
to work in your home office
fielding customer service calls for
a large telecom?
Do you see the pastor across the street?
She’s delivering a sermon about
the eternity of your soul

She says
God doesn’t guarantee a perfect life
God guarantees a perfect eternity
You weave in and out of traffic
following traffic directions that don’t line up
to your goals
Where else can you go?
Nowhere of import
in a pandemic
but spiritually
you can
