The world goes on.

Vacation
by Steve Garness-Holmes

I went on vacation for a week.

The world went on without me;

         Another bore it carefully,

         whose world it is, not mine.

I was purely who I am,

         proving nothing.

         earning nothing.

I was present for no end

         but to be present. 

It was lovely.

This is the gift of Sabbath.

May it come to you again and again,

         like breathing, like a heartbeat,

         a Word from God.
