And God Made A Poet

Rating: 5.0
There need to be people
toiling on this Earth
for whom money
is not the Bottom Line

those who see
beyond the moment
the temporal frame of inhuman
nature

to lead with voice of spirit
and marked uncommon sense.

A witty rendition set aside for sober reflection. A work of an intricate mind elegantly penned with spiritual insight.

At times we are a voice in the darkness...and at times just a voice in our head. Nice to see someone extolling the value of both.
