Turning

Written by Rev. Bonnie Stephens Canizaro

Turning

Sitting alone in a campus classroom
Studying the New Testament Greek,
My attention was drawn
to the flapping of a bird
whose wing feathers were caught
when I closed the window.
So I must end my divine studies
and render mercy
to the damaged creature.
So must we all leave our devout studies
and render aid
to those in distress
around us.
