Briefly

For dozens of years,
I was "by-the-book":
a monster of dogma,
a brittle and strident
ecclesial partisan.


Then Life happened
in all Her wacky
sacramental splendour,
and I fell to my knees
to receive Her grace.

The second stanza is a revelation -- explains aptly what happened. Your short poems are a joy to read!
