We sit and listen

After Ephesians 1:18

We sit and listen
to the reading
of the will, the attorney’s
soft voice reading
and reducing
the language required
by law, and the language
required by the heart.

We listen as heirs, eager
to know what inheritance
has been provisioned
for each of us. Anticipation
builds with each whereas
until we hear the finality:
our inheritance, what is
left to us and for us,
is hope.

And that hope does not disappoint... Loved this, Glynn. Thank you.
