Salt and Light

(A Haiku Quartet)
by Jim Rapp

too much attention
to the world is corrosive
destroying the soul

we are not given
hope that we’ll escape the world
but faith to save it

not that we will be
taken out of the world but
learn to live in it

serving as light and
salt; shining on its ills while
stinging as we heal
