(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in forgiving others as Jesus [and canines] taught me”)

When you think you don’t err, you’re delusion.

Denial mistakes shapes for ghosts’ delight.

Speaking of mistakes, yours have been proven

to be human. Spiritually, you’re “right.”

I err, then withdraw, then seclude, then wait

for you to come find me in fright of night,

where I’m cornered as a human for bait.

No one hooks me, though. None for when I bite.

“Forgive us our debt; we forgive debtor.”

Human us our wrongs as we human them.

We’d love them by spirit if knew better.

We need Jesus to help us not condemn.

When they start the pushes, we stop the shoves.

Humans err, spirits forgive, and God loves.
