Meteorological Fall


The calendar speaks of time remaining,
A brief remnant at summer's tail-end;
Yet the sighs of the corn tell a tale,
Of dry wind and combines being readied.

Beauty


Beauty doesn't fade away -
It matures and it ripens:
As it is perfected by nature;
As it is sanctified by love;
As life slowly transforms it,
Into a vision only newly seen,
Once beheld by eyes once blind.

Lament for the Day



Children who are not children -
murdering children so casually;
YOUR children die in our streets!
Do they know what they do?
Is life so bereft of value now?
Why do You let your children,
shoot Your children in Chicago?

Brave and valiant Protectors,
living in fear and frustration,
killing their wards in our streets!
Do they know what they do?
Are black lives of lesser value?
Why do You let your children,
shoot Your children in America?

Zealots and Pharisees abound;
bringing purity and genocide,
through cruel human sacrifices!
Do they know what they do?
Does religion give them value?
Why do You let your children,
kill and crucify Your children?
