Almost complete


After Nehemiah 6:1-14 and I John 4:16-19

The work almost complete
the work of strength
and beauty, complete
except for the doors
of the gates, the work
preceded by the call
and the command

almost complete

then the accusation
of treason and revolt,
rebellion and ambition,
an accusation aimed
to undermine within
and conspire without

and instead of reaction
comes wisdom:

strengthen my hands
to complete the work.
