In light of the current state of affairs in our world today I feel that this poem I wrote years ago is relevant to us. That is the framework I see for it at this moment:
I had a vision
I saw the world change
And it has been so long.
I saw roses
Springing up from my arms.
And drawn all over,
As with a paintbrush,
I was a picture
Of a creature unborn.
Unimagined the eyes oh the eyes
Were as bright as the sum of the sols.
Projecting your sins in my song
You pray for me, the chosen one.
Close your eyes and shield the pain
For like an Angel I am
Here to do God’s will.
Add life to your hour,
And like the grass of the fields
Dress you, self, in flowering arms.
Y Colorin’ Colorado
We turned into a mother—
