His Will

The will of God comes in seasons

for His purpose not my own

I am not the picture His picture

My selfie is nothing

against a backdrop of the beauty

in creation His creation

His new day

His way

His will be done

His Will

Sonnet for Modern Day Current Event

            Jan 19, 2019 at Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool

 

 

 

Black Hebrew Israelites on the mall

speak loud in zealous religious tenor

hear the old testament not throw it away

raise their voice louder on a winter day

 

 

Covington High School students respond

while standing on the steps of Lincoln Hall

break the tension with a school sports cheer

with a smile a shout or was it a sneer

 

 

Indigenous elder beats on his drum

approaches the youth with his movement song

God the Creator will answer my call

media or a troll will send it to all

 

 

And in that moment was on display

freedom to assemble speak out and pray

Sonnet for Modern Day Current Event

You and the Eclipse

to Greg

 

Watch as the moon makes a sliver of the sun.  You can almost see it move. It put a blind spot on the surface. Solar experience. Totality somewhere. But you would not travel to the path of totality. You who doesn’t like lines, traffic or the hype. Now totality comes in another place and you are content with just a sliver of the moment.

So it never got dark, it never made that perfect circle of promised intervention or made the stars shine in the day. And now a half disc lowers itself towards the east horizon and I watch and wait for the glorious totality of the sun.

Can this be random
When heavens and earth align
Or a great design?

You and the Eclipse
