Walking Through Chasms


Take this hand -

(age-stained
love painted
time-tainted)

Many times it has held
(smoothed,
soothed
delude-
ed)
Some(thing) one else.

It has touched
(felt manipulated
held
bled
fed
caressed)

It is wrinkled,
Brown now, worn down,
(it has been intimate
with infinite
things)

This hand is marked
With a thousand moments -
(scars -
star-maps of time,
age-creepers,
marking a life-span) .

Take this map -
And walk beside me through its
Chasms.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
