Tales of These Times…

acorns at Franklin Park

tears in Houston;

where is my mother?

resting peacefully…

where is my dad?

waiting quietly…

and i 

am alone

in these sad times.

wondering

and hoping

that the people

of good

will be saved,

vindicated, 

rewarded.

it has always been evident

that America

was founded

in pain,

loss,

and

mourning. 

while some pretend

there is nothing owed;

nothing

to be

back-payed;

the debt has

accrued…

tears in Washington

Thanksgiving in Houston.

a juxtaposed

reality–

a difficult time

and yet

i am reminded

of victory;

it is often

stealth, unplanned.

the debt

has accrued…

and ‘payment’ been deferred.

i will wait 

for it…

patiently,

from my faithful perch

of hope.
