REBIRTH… a poem of faith

white concrete statue during daytime

What’s happened to humanity

More and more I wonder why

The hate and visceral cruelty

Towards someone who’s different

Than you or I

If only they could stop and think

The other way around

They’d see that they are different too

Skin of olive, gold or brown

Inside there is a beating heart

With love of life and kin

Just like you and me, that is

We’re all the same within

It’s been going on as long as man

Has walked upon the earth

But there is One who paid the price

His name is Jesus

He gives us life

He gives rebirth

AN OBSEQUIOUS RABBIT… a poem

Rabbit, Hare, Bunny, Costume, Animal

The ramblings of an obsequious rabbit

Have inhabited my thoughts for decades on end

How can it be that a hare such as he

Paused my imagination time and again

You’d think I’d know better after all these years

Of that cute little nose and big floppy ears

That carrots and lettuce and who knows what else

Would harden these eyes to its beautiful pelt

But don’t think me cruel as it was his own fault

I’d built fences, filled holes to make the thing halt

Yet obsession, the little furry creature possessed

Made a martyr of that bunny to all the rest
