|In praise of the semicolonIn Praise of the Semicolon
Never put a period,
or colon or even a comma
where God put a semicolon.Unlike the settled-
periodor the colon’s
invitation to see all
or the exclamation point’s
or even the lighthearted
without yielding to one
along the way where
God I believe;

Or as Swedenborgian scholar Rev. Dr. George Dole puts it: “Written revelation is inevitably misunderstood and misused if it is regarded as exclusive or final. “

Nice poem. It could use some more semicolons though 🙂
What I notice is the tension of living in a semicolon life. And, it is where I choose to live. I also notice when a person does not live there, and does not want to live there. And the next step is to accept and love them where and how they are. I’m not there consistently yet!
If only people used semicolons correctly :D.
