Poet, Prophet, Preacher the job s the same -- somfort the comfortless and kick the comfortable ones in tne *ss

the poet sees thunder
behind clear blue sky
he sees a devil
in a guardian angel
the evil in his own heart.
he's a downer, a crape hanger,
a wet blanket, a party pooper;
maudlin when he’s drunk.
until push comes to shove
and the sky begins to fall
then the poet sees
the sun beyond the storm
the hope that triumphs
over disaster, and
power of the
open human heart.

John, marvelous work. Thank you for providing the perfect explanation for our deep urge to the contrary. Loved this!

The poet sees beauty where there is ugliness, and writes about ugliness in the midst of beauty. Duplicity, yet necessary for the Poet's sanity and survival. An excellent, excellent write--enjoyed.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
