Appointment Card

There is no date
On this card,
So we refuel vehicles,
Rake the yard
Sip coffee
Make love,
Scrub, scold,
The treasure-trove
Of all things human
Closely aligned
With an appointment
That sometimes slips our mind
As we seek, find
Hold, let go
And marvel at the beauty
Of sunset on snow
Or worry that duty
Is bigger than hope
As we try to balance
On life’s one way slope
Drawing us nearer
Not to graves of sod
But to faith-and-trembling,
Appointment with God
