Best Poem of Paul du Plessis

In Detention

Establishment challenger
Confronter extraordinaire
In a call for justice
That backfired on me.

Baptising forerunner
Who set him on his way
Now silenced behind bars
With doubts creeping up on me.

Health restored; sight back;
The demon-possessed freed;
Prophecy fulfilled
But what of me?

Synagogue scroll in action
Post-Capernaum
But prisoners still inside
Including me.

One last word about my cousin:
Violent hatred
Will come his way too
But certainly not from me.

John the Baptist responds to news about Jesus – Luke...

Natural Selection

A divine presence settles on us
Above worm and bird, wombat and beetle
In the world of transmutation
Closely observed by explorer Darwin,
But still not the fittest, nor the most likely
Among the elect - just an ordinary me
Knowing the Spirit that gives true identity
Allowing humble origins blend into equality,
Making imperfect sense of reformer Calvin
