Lessons of the DeadBehold now, while you still stand: How many 'round you lie,
who lived lives from day to day, and all have come to die?
Does it seem strange that, some day soon, the grave will claim you too?
Or do you live life from day to day, with too much work to do?
Continue on, it soon will seem: Your life has passed as if a dream.
The hour comes for everyone, and you should know that it is true.
If you thought naught of the grave, why should it consider you?
Do you know where you'll go, when your well's at last run dry?
Or do you say, in your heart: "I will never die"?
When you say you know these things, is it really true?
Do you live what you believe, or what you say you do?
Will you wait, 'til it's too late, and gray hairs adorn your head,
until you're laid low as well to preach the lesson of the dead?
Do you now say "I know my God!" and let pride rob you blind?
Or do you search, night and day, until His presence find?
The choice is yours.. but don't forget: the clock is always ticking.
MercyOh sweet God how the grassland
ignites in moonlight tonight
I must thank you for creating
her tangled fingers' slow pace
through the handsome rain Her
trochaic kinesthesia to rhythms
in Stravinsky's The Rite of
Spring Is this how you meant
for us to love you Yahweh
Tumbling clumsily down hills
of sheets into perpetually
immutable silence I could love
you like that I think I've been
practicing on this Savanna
for days and months Lost in
her crystal canvas Rolling crests
and troughs And when she touches
me Oh fair Lord I'm dragged into
your city past Gethsemane's
pulsing green and gold
Please hold us together
under this luminous stretch
Oh Father We are live
unclothed Our reflections awash
with the skin of your sun
Keep in Touch!
