To plunge into the second part

After Isaiah 56:1, 2

To plunge into the second part
is a mystery, a bewilderment,
this justice bit, this doing
right, aimed at whim, aimed
by whom, aimed when
although the why is less
unknown, because of what
is at hand, suggesting or offering
a mercy and a grace, a blessing
for doing this consistently and
daily, a moment by moment
commitment to act and act
of commitment, and how is
justice bound up in rest
or the Sabbath, as if we
need rest from a hard work.
It’s a mystery, this drenching
of the world with the kingdom.
