Heralds Of Peace

HERALDS OF PEACE

All too frequently feeling
as if, as if to be achieving,
achieving all too little beyond
a preaching to an angelic choir.

Well worn, ancient and repetitive
our words while these apostate demons
our counterpoint – admittedly
– are sadly otherwise occupied.

Yet this is our ground. Our ground!
And so here upon it we stand:
bellowing, howling, yelling,
whispering, weeping …

Whichever seems timely and appropriate.

  1. Most eloquent, Ben. And all five of those are appropriate…all at once if necessary. Once weeping, to begin again. Peace and love ☮️
