To Do Lists by Raymond A. Foss

So much like Martha, lamenting
our minds so busy, cluttered,
to do lists calling, attention, focus
pulling us away, from stillness,
quietude, from listening

Needing to be like Mary
falling at the master’s feet,
listening, his spirit stilled
choosing to spend time
the master in her presence

Sit and listen, Martha
pull up a mat, fold your legs
let go of the work, the broom
The work will be there, presently
Sit and spend time with the Lord
