writing on heaven’s walls…

i had planned
to sing
a merry tune
for you
to raise
your spirits
from life’s despairs
but
i could not find
one rhyme
while
words
of hate
fill the air
like
summer cicadas
nestled in
a nation’s darkness
so
i sat here
pondering how
to overcome
these barren thoughts
and
as i did
i saw one finch
join in song
with another
then
another
and
it was as if
god
had provided
the answer
we
must join in song
in a chorus
that defies
darkness
to usher in
the
new day’s
light

  1. Yes, Charlie, I think we can do both as we are called to do them. At present I would love to write a long, incoherent essay, filled with ranting and cussing. But that type of writing rarely makes anything better. Good thing I haven’t learned how to take angry photos with my camera. Maybe I could do a selfie. 🙂 This was the perfect poem for this Sunday morning. Thanks.
