When the storm arrives where will you
be?

Where will you turn for shelter?

Who’s Arms will protect you from the wind?

When lightening strikes will you see?

We dance in the sunshine but can’t
withstand the rain.

Life is invigorated by the sun,

yes this is true,

but without the rain to cleanse us we can never be born anew.

When the storm winds blow will you

stand strong?

Or topple like the houses you’ve built with vanities.

Today I stumbled upon an Ekphrasis piece, which is writing about a piece of art. Ekphrasis is more than a art review but is a poetic reflection inspired by the art piece. See my reflection on the sculpture Two Moors below. I took this picture at the Walters Museum of Art during the summer of 2010.

Deep, dark, ebony, mahogany, the moorish love of deep still waters. Their love was like the beautiful darkness that resided upon the face of the deep during the silence before the birth of creation. As they came together the spirit of God moved upon the face of their waters and manifested life. Their love was Royal and could not be conquered or contained.

This is Poem 27 of my Poetry Challenge.

A warm whisper.

A gentle caress.

Assurance that greatness can come from gentleness.

Exhaling self doubt,

Inhaling self love.

We rest in the knowledge that light has drawn us together,

and the depths of hell can not tear us apart.

Through sickness, pain and rain,

our joy is full because our love was built on the solid rock of divine timing.

The A Train

We’re riding together but sit worlds apart.

The stockbroker, the mother, the hobo living in separate realities, yet riding in the same car.

The A Train zips from beaches to hoods to ground zero.

Our liberal metropolis is a kingdom of progressive “niceties”.

The A Train is a silver chariot carrying us through our politely segregated city.
