Life is Love
Screeching shadows engulf deep valleys
Pain-full clouds holding stones of hail
Chilling winds with icy fingers curling
Earnest prayers empty tomorrow’s hopes.
Lonely broken travelers fight the storm
Neon homeless shelters shout “Jesus Saves”
Satan prays as Mary holds the broken door
Raging, chained demoniac cries “It’s the Lord!”
No sun nor moon and no more stars to guide
Storm rages through the living room of time
All homelessly numb waiting for life to pass
Teeth gnashing, eyes rolling, the virgin waits.
SUDDEN SILENCE screams against dementia
Tiny ray of piercing light splits darkness twain
Two lovers naked lay across the Sony screen
Pure and holy transparently wrapped in LOVE.
Life is love, fear and peace spread-eagle wide
Vivid freeze-frame world slowly comes apart
Storms fury groans and dies a sudden death
Sun of Love brightly seeds fertile open ground.
