plastic moment

now that it is almost October

I decided to finally take down the spring wreath

hanging on my porch wall

and put up a more seasonal fall one

to my surprise
I found a nest had been carefully built
into the top of the wreath

this wreath that is very colorful
but absolutely false


and fake

and it reminded me
how discerning we must be
about the place where we give birth

to the things of the Spirit

things can look real
smell real

feel real

and yet be totally false

scripture warns us about casting our pearls .............

if the babe in your womb
does not leap

when you are with the people who surround you

you are surrounded
by the wrong people
