Praise God As Blessed Peacemakers - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

Aya Sophýa Istanbul
church built to honour our God
became prime model
for all mosques to honour Allah

after Islamic invasion of Istanbul
Constantinople Byzantium fell

all houses of God
are sacred holy places
no true worshipper
will suicide bomb any worshippers

no true worshipper
makes war on poor women children
enlightened souls
tolerant compassionate peace lovers

praise God as blessed peacemakers
embrace all races as God’s children
respect honour all cultures religions
knowing only God in authority judges

    Speaking as a tourist traveller in the journey I have been looking for different religions are different steps anticipations of the Light. The St. Sophia anticipated backwards in time to reveal our future, Despite the fact that sagacity always will dawn in human ignorance exactly because God is the ultimate judge. Beautiful poem Terry.
