You often say good-bye 

In much the same way you as you say hello

Dependably and consistently displaying a radiant glow

You have been worshipped as though you were a god

Blinding mortals by your finite brilliance

Not knowing that One greater

Maker of us all has dominion even over you


The Performing Skies of July   Leave a comment

How minuscule I feel amidst the power of a storm

Charged by the dynamo of creation

Merely but a glimpse, like the first cat claw on the water’s surface

Before the mounting tempest



Can We Bring Back the Color   Leave a comment

There is so much of me you do not see

You’re blinded by the color

The details, clear and sharp, are blurred

Like words that drunkards slur


You paint a stroke so careless and so broad

And gather all you can to self

As though there’s no one else


Changes occur so slowly; you’re too self absorbed to notice

Then like a storm of unrelenting lightning strikes

Realizations, undeniable, and frightening

The world as you once knew it

Has begun to disappear


Your hoarding, greed, and fear, and doubt

Sucked out all the color of your life

The choice is sacred, now supreme

And there’s only one to make

Will it be black — Will it be white


What you perceive as gray — is held together by grace

Like a reckless child, the rest you have erased

Only black and white remain

And that too, is fading fast


Oh God, I pray bring back the color to our world

When care-free choices once were many

I frolicked through each season

Taking for granted, there would be a next


 The evidence, the knowledge, is a stark and grievous burden

One more chance, I beg to see

To save what’s left of me

Then with hope, to save another

That we, with You, bring back to life, the wonder, and the color
