  89.     

The Last Passage

is an individual journey
to be sure

but you will take with you
the hearts of a thousand innocents

and more

remembered in their tears
and the fondness of their laughter

you shall indeed
rise to a heavenly grace

that makes this life
transcendant.

  90.     

The Whistle Blower

Took the sins of the Corporation
Upon her shoulders
The indignity of her firing

Struggling to make ends meet
Unemployed, without prospect
Children crying, hungry

Yet she endured

The barrage of punishing lawsuits
A legion of lawyers platooned
To make her life unbearable

Anonymous threats
Phone calls and burning
Mailboxes

Almost beaten, she clung
With bleeding fingers to the
Inviolable Truth

Truth that held her steady
Truth that wouldn’t let her go
Truth demanding apology

The gavel came down.

Some hear screams in the dead of night
Most continue dreaming
The bed so comfortable, and the morning

So far away.

  91.     

Trees of Life

Art
is a seed
when well-planted

Brings forth the rarest fruit
of red revelation
and tart understanding.


(Previously published in Bolts of Silk, Feb 2007)

  92.     

Wade In The Wave

Every stone I cast
on water ripples

to the edge of an unknown
world

and when in time
another stone skims past

the hand I know not
rippling why

remembers
the choosing of the rock

its color and touch
immortal, divine.
