Lenten reflection on scripture — Matthew 5:14-16

You are the white cane of the world.white cane

A city is meant for walking
a curb for stepping down,
a world for rafting and dancing.

Here is an arm,
a service dog, a waitperson
with menu slick on the tongue.
It’s just a bushel of helpful.

But here is someone with a white cane
who can say what is in the house
who can notice.
So tap, shine, tap —
so many of us are desperate
for someone to describe glory.
