On a Hill in Wales, Father and Son

by S Francis

1.

To the beginning son, go back with me
Remember how I stood beside you when…

No, you only remember my absence.

Here we return with precision, an arrow
Fired by the great Tell who reveals us.
The apple on our heads, the gift of Eve
Who saw in us the beginning of Love.

The Four Chambered Heart

by S Francis

Now, where are the words
The heart needs?
Sort through its four chambers
To mix blood for the body to keep moving,
If not forward,
Any motion is better than none.

Soft walls,
Trim dangles,
Ceiling cracked,
Windows frosted with dust.
These images attract hope.

You’ll Never Be Alone (for Bobby)

by S Francis

Son
Today with oil, water and breath
I watched the priest
Open the soul of a boy
To God.

As

Was
A long time ago
And many sins past.

Judgement Day

by Nick Anthony

When He came down from the heavens above,
We welcomed Him, arms wide open with love.
We showered our God with adoration
And eagerly sought His revelation.

Prostrated before His magnificence
In an attempted rite of recompense
Under the golden throne of creation,
We prayed for everlasting salvation,

by pranabaxom

Millions tortured, maimed and killed
Still preach the gospel

Marveling at divine creation
In silence, love and sweet grace
Filling my soul with awe and elation.
