Lectionary Poetry – 21st Sunday After Pentecost (Year A)

Lectionary Poetry Trinity Sunday

With the dawn of a new church year, we have launched a new feature on our website, a weekly post of poetry that resonates with the lectionary readings for that week (Revised Common Lectionary).
 
 

*** Narrative Lectionary ***

Lectionary Reading:
2 Samuel 7:1-17

 
 

CLASSIC POEM:

Temple of Love
Rumi

The temple of love is not love itself;
True love is the treasure,
Not the walls about it.
Do not admire the decoration,
But involve yourself in the essence,
The perfume that invades and touches you-
The beginning and the end.
Discovered, this replace all else,
The apparent and the unknowable.
Time and space are slaves to this presence.
 
 

 CONTEMPORARY POEM:

The Way In
Linda Hogan

SNIPPET:

Sometimes the way to milk and honey is through the body.
Sometimes the way in is a song.
