The Thick of It

by Susan Dromey Heeter

Communions and weddings
Easter and Love
All gloriously blessed,
All from above

In the thick of it,
We worry of the tasks
All at hand – the
Dresses, the food -|
Should we hire a band?

And yet in the thick,
In the details we muddle,
We forget the true point,|
We trudge and we muddle.

It’s simple, dear friends,
The details do count,
The weather does matter,
The bills sure can mount

But in the thick is the love,
The kindness, the pause –
The moment of truth when
There are no real laws –

The thick of it takes
And when we clear out the path,
Let’s bring it to simple,
Like taking a bath

The celebrations are warmth,
Not bubbles of feasts
Simply a cleanse
A pause to bequeath

Take time to resist
The hype of the stress
For in the true thick,
You’re not worth any less.
