Trinity

Grail

Sons of the gods
who walk among us
hands to hold
and hearts beyond
the reason
of Saints
and sinners
Words let
reveal
the waste
or The Way

Then should
the Father
coming to be
awakened by
anger
in this
summer storm
quiet the thunder
fears revealed
nourish or flood
so feelings
will see

Ghosts ever
Holy, sacred
in glory
or secret
and ancient
forgotten
in time
this worship
shall empty
love’s longing
chalice
water or wine
what Spirits
will be?

Renaissance

IMG_0326

Knights who stood before the Queen
Received her mercies and her grace
Left to stand now in between
Their armor and her lace

Trusting in their ancient skill
Worked by hammer into steel
Revealing all they ever will
Before her grace they kneel

Centuries of tales untold
A renaissance of man to learn
Unwritten words from days of old
Our longing always to return
