For Love of Your Child

Post No. 816


For Love of Your Child


Is there a list that I have missed

Of doing time to fit the crime:

This for that, tit for tat,

Hard to say…

Can we love too much

But it’s not the same

God is God

To be worshipped,

Admired, beloved

And held in awe,

Where you are flesh of my flesh,

Blood of my blood,

Human as me in my mortality.

The Hanging Moon


I watch the moon hang in the sky

I meet her gaze eye to eye

Lantern-like she doesn’t blink

Nor give a hint of what she thinks

As she reflects on earth below

Where human ants scurry to and fro

What thorny issues does she ponder

What on Earth is there I wonder

To keep that stare fixed day and night

On the view from that great height
