Grace Upon Grace,
The parties are over.
Today we put
pen to paper or
fingers to keyboard or
stylus to screen.
We are making lists
of long-deferred errands and chores
of 2016 events that now need attention.
Just for a moment, Morningstar,
lift our heads from our lists this day.
Just for a moment, help us to see
list-less-ness not as sloth
but as free fall
