THE ZEALOUS CARETAKER
Kelvin M. Knight
The way the congregational tourists mooched about the nave made him sigh. Their subdued pointing. Their downtrodden eyes. He wanted to leap up and dance like Rasputin.
Hands tingling, he remained on his chair while his gaze pranced skyward. The ceiling swirled. Murals smudged. Golds blended with teals. Heads entwined with limbs. Halos brighter than dawn blossomed then tumbled like feathers. When one touched him, he leapt from his chair.
Unable to stop his arms gesticulating, he exclaimed, ‘Spirituality isn’t about these riches on display, it’s about the riches we need to display inside ourselves!’ He pointed at each ethereal feather falling toward them. ‘Say hello to your halo. Let these lights shine in your eyes, for a moment, just a moment, by letting go of your frustrations and fears!’
Their silence boomed misunderstanding.
Eyes widening, he slumped in his chair and realised he’d seen more joy at yesterday’s funeral.
