Have Heart For A Better Humanity

at the end of a day

When a place of worship crumbles

Into hell of gore and pain,

And the sorrows of the many

Become what connects us all again,

Know that care can conquer ugly

And that compassion outdoes hate’s disdain,

As long as we eject terror

To heed the better, deeper call,

That anything that harms our kinship

Diminishes the very core of all,

Just as anything that builds it

Can lead humanity to standing tall.

Take A Snapshot Of Your Heart

As one year draws to close

And another gets set to rise,

Take a snapshot of your heart

In its joy and woe alike.

 

As moments tick toward the new,

Remove blinds from your weary eyes,

And let Soul show you who

You’ve been when you were wise.

 

It will revisit steps you took

So you can plan the next,

And hold the images of good,

For New Year’s light to reflect.

I Will Leave The Light On

I will leave the light on

For you and those still lost.

I will leave the light on

For nights when stars hide most.

I will leave the light on

Even if some say I’m wrong.

I will leave the light on

So you know that you belong.

I will leave the light on

During storms and gale and snow.

I will leave the light on

Just so you see and know.

As night

Folds wings

Of gray,

Pink sky

Herald glory

Of today.

She Could Not Believe Her Eyes

She could not believe her eyes

As the path forked into surprise

And the end of trail became

Just step one into the game

Long the day stretched on ahead

Hours left for them to tread.

A Basalt Creek After The Rain

A basalt creek after the rain

Where mountains spewed onto the plain

Cold lava rock there still remains

The base for what’ll grow again.

Six Words Are Not Quite Enough

Six words are not quite enough

For me who lengthy rhymes adore

So instead of words to doff

I’ll celebrate with six times four.
