Faith

Maverick


 

 

The modern-day lamb in stripes and stars

 

Lay in sacrifice of what should be.

 

He re-ignites the paschal-candle of brotherhood

 

and kindness in a country so dark.

 

darken from the light of goodness.

 

He poured from the receptacle of time,

 

and honor and devotion.

 

He lays the gauntlet of ‘moving-on’

 

In hopes others will follow.

Morning


flickering morning fire
quietly throws warmth
across the shadows

no sleep lifts me up
from my warm bed
to sit in the dark

thinking, weighted
yesterdays forge
into serenity

praying in resolution
knowing the day
will be full

Listening


She was listening
voices around her unaware
she lies in waiting
she was listening
to the tears
the consolations
she was listening
when someone whispered
to her, I love you.
listening to the voices
leaving the room for a moment
and then she left…
