Peace Be With You


The man was seated in a pew,
sandwiched between
his wife and children,

head bowed,
all piety and innocence
on his face
mouthing the words
to the preacher's prayer.

Were his thoughts with God
I wondered, or the woman
I saw leaving his car
following a passionate kiss
the day before.

(I was again reminded
not to judge, lest I be judged)
and I'm sure not perfect.

It's said that heaven
has many rooms
- maybe even one for him.

As for me, when the time comes,
I believe I'll request another floor.

Peace be with you.

    I wonder - this sounds like it's based on an actual event?

    Moral: If you're gonna cheat make sure a writer doesn't see you! lol

    Nice job.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
