Omicron.
From where did it come?
From nature,
mutating.
Is there recourse against it?
Yes, inside ourselves.

Omicron.
Nature’s dire warning
to notice
all the things
that are really important.
When will we listen?

Omicron.
Bellowing out loud
the nature
of our harm
to the earth that sustains us
Begging us to hear.

Omicron.
A more deadly strain.
Each of its
mutations
carries a stronger warning
to love each other.

Omicron.
It is a blessing,
telling us
that hope comes
when we understand its call:
ONLY CORRECTION.

At-one-ment.
The joining of our hearts,
creating
among us
a welcoming place for Him
to bestow His grace.

Atonement.
Intention to reform
our past sins
so that we
unerringly turn to Him
to receive His light.

At-one-ment.
The perfect state we seek.
Together,
forever,
in a state of unity,
adhering to Him.
