Twas an antique time

Of pendulums & springs

Of measured metrics

Of hands fragile in arcs–

Definitive gestures

Gave solid proof

Evidence was mountainous

Pleas were entertained

And the guilty suffered

While the innocent sang

Sweet songs of loyalty.

Before we go now

Expect much

Look upward

Steady gaze

Stick to your furrow

The clouds say

In striations

Shadowed with rain

Dark & heavy

The fingers that raked

This timely message

Are strong, claw-like

But manicured nails,

God has time for a manicure

And wears a floral wreath

In unisex fashion

Elegant & fastidious.

No one said a thing

The moment came & went

Like surf against rocks

The sea is big–

Very big!

So we on the shore

We are not afraid–

We have known storms

And retreated to higher ground.

Still fishing, mending nets

Fair weather we return

To the swells under blue, over blue,

Silver fish dart into nets

We sing songs,  pull oars,

Rest easy.

Day’s End, Coming Ashore
