    tonight we will play
    with the clocks,
    springing forward,
    saving daylight,
    acting as though
    we could tell time
    anything at all

    we spent the daylight
    we had this afternoon
    taking the top
    off the Wrangler
    and winding our way
    through an early
    spring afternoon

    who needs clocks
    on a day like today
    or tomorrow —
    as we gather at church
    would we could
    muster the same
    abandon for worship

    laying aside our ticks
    and tasks, and bask
    in the breeze and shine
    of the Spirit who springs
    our hearts forward and
    has no idea that worship
    lasts only an hour
