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...

Prayer Walk

Feet crunch cracked mud uphill
Breaking a twig underfoot
While passengers take their pews
In the train speeding northwards
As the silence of stillness interrupts
The regular rattle of rail-track
Echoing emptiness.

Arms swing militarily to cross the heart
