Perfect circles


After I John 4:13-5:5

Life: to love.
Love: to live
in God, to live
in God: to live
in love.
A perfect, the perfect
circle enclosing us
in a bond unbroken.
To live in love
in a world such as this
equals conflict, surely,
hardship, possibly,
persecution, likely,
and death, inevitably,
death, at least, to this world.
If I and we can live in love,
as he did,
then conflict and hardship
and persecution and death
will come, another
perfect circle.
