12th June 2016 – Sunday 11C

LUKE 7:36-8:3
DINING OUT (A Haiku series)
Formal and polite
the meal turned to objection
at the unwanted.

Weeping tears of grace,
she anointed Jesus’ feet
with ointment so rare.

Simon saw her sin;
Jesus saw in her presence
only love and grace.

Do I see or not?
Perhaps I do not see
the Simon in me.
