Words Inspired by the Life of Chaplain Lyle Von Seggern (**** density level)

At Edison's great fire
He called his wife as witness
To pastel pillar twists of chemically fed flames
That could have destroyed both work and life
Of a less centered man.

Edison wore God's armor.

Our home has seen candescent storm enough
That turns earth's dome to shattering white
Yielding originalites of lightning that teach of fright
This gospel is well written and established that
We know beyond our capacity to understand.

In legion ways we still struggle
with an ancient central foe called fear
This thing that never pierced the great inventor's heart
And teaches us in crucible a central truth of spirit
Not even flame is strong enough to singe the hem of love.

Writing Poetry Late at Night after my Wife's Cancer Surgery Exam

"The Paris Review" holds treasures.
I start by reading others.
Hanging Loose Press was discovered tonight.
These words will never be published.
Sometimes life is simply too much work.

* A Prose Quote from Walt Whitman Appropriate to the Spirit of this Blog (1855 Preface to 'Leaves of Grass')

'Through the divinity of themselves shall the kosmos and the new breed of poets be interpreters of men and women and of all events and things. They shall find their inspiration in real objects to-day, symptoms of the past and future....They shall not deign to defend immortality or God or the perfection of things or liberty or the exquisite beauty and reality of the soul. They shall arise in America and be responded to from the remainder of the earth.'

Quoted from 'The Harvard Classics' edited by Charles W, Eliot copyright of 1938 by P. F. Collier & Son Corporation 'Prefaces and Prologues to Famous Books with Introductions and Notes' New York page 407 to 408.

:) Eulogy For 'Duke' A Long Dead Dog

Officially he was Othello and black as The Moor
A dog of perfect face
But a little too wide of flank for show perfection.
Of such sweet disposition
MJ literally took ham from his mouth
With only temporary cost of betrayed confusion to his face.

Therefore he must be given the benefit of doubt
For one solitary night when father was away
With stranger he turned completely vicious at the door
And denied evil entry, vetoing mother's gracious spirit.
What that darkness in somatic form intended I will never know
And am convinced to this date we were protected on that night of snow
By a loving lovely Labrador a little too wide of flank for perfect show.
