Mountains Touching Sky

Mountains touching sky

Mother Earth breathes in the rain

Moon bows to the sun

All symbols of God’s beauty

If we took time to notice

Humility

Have we no shame

Unravelling nations and peoples;

Milling through their resources for our own gain,

Insisting we are justified.

Look at the dead in our wake!

Is this what humbleness looks like

Taking what’s theirs as ours

Yet claiming we are righteous?

He’s Called By Many Names

He’s called many names

God, Rom, Allah, Krishna, Christ

All are names of peace

It’s man who is violent

Not the Gods whom they worship

 

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Swells Do Roll and Crest

Swells do roll and crest

Ever higher and deeper

In violent rage

Poseidon shows no mercy

In the face of man’s folly

 

He takes what is his

Via trident and tempest

As done for eons

Seafarers have felt his wrath

With their last breath and their souls

 

Neither steel nor wood

Doth offer them asylum

This is not his way

As he strangles his victims

To fill his watery grave
