Forgiveness

Forgiveness,
like trust
and repentance
and the salvation of heroes
slowly getting back up,

Forgiveness,
of Other
and others
and self,

Forgiving
is not instant,
like a package of oatmeal
or grits,
because growing
and regrowing trust
is a process,
like growing flowers,
blossoming in their
and our own
best time for resilience,
regeneration,
restoring beauty
and peace

Forgiveness,
like repentance
and the win/win salvation of souls,
isn’t all or nothing,
except in those climatic moments
of anger,
when it is nothing,
and except in those climatic moments
of joy,
when it is all

When we are fully engaged
in trusting this place
investing this time
within win/win EarthTribe
mundane sacramental life

Just right
for getting back up

What’s left
for giving Other
yet another chance
to not screw us up.
