The Light Of Deity... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

Where were you when the Maple trees died?
Where were you when their leaves fell and dried?
Where were you when Nature's Mother's just sighed,
With a wink and smile to Autunns beguile.

Yes, I know, You were there, I believe, I'll attest
Even trees need a stretch of a long winters rest.
And, You knew all of this, before You dropped Your kiss-
O'er the clouds and the Sun, and so much more than this,
before the air, mornings dew, the breeze that cools its mist,
before you sent your only Son to carry out His sacrifice
that began a chain of Renaissance from Resurrections light.
You were there, You are here... Your presence always be
Because that's what God does....He's the Light of Diety.

    WoW. WoW. and WoW. Not very literary of me to say but so descriptive of how I felt after reading this masterpiece. I could say awesome but that doesn't express my feelings quite as well as WoW. I would applaud but you cannot hear. So..... WoW, sir, Wow! (Report) Reply

    Beautiful poem. One haunting question asked by humans is that why suffering is there. To accept and reconcile with Nature's way is a way forward. (Report) Reply

    Following lines of the poem open up a wonderful narrative but the denouement would so dramatic and philosophical, I could not have imagined. It's just amazing. Liked it. Congrats for being on top of the order, Frank. Thanks.
    Where were you when the Maple trees cried?
    Where were you when their leaves fell and dried?
