Weary on a mind quest « Poetmeister …on the road to Parnassus

Another of my surf-by sonnets.

God’s Bitter Angel Answers

 

You who rose from dust to life, breath of God

in skin-prison bottled, do you question

His supreme plan? Does your veneration

fall so short of glory, that you would nod

your head and pray mere words? Would He be God

could He not answer? Yet your hymn’s less sung

in worship than in dark desperation—

dissonant in choral dread of the Rod.

 

Is He not Love? Does Love punish only?

Take heart, little wren, grasp faith in your heart

and know that Love is you, that you are love—

His breath and heartbeat are yours; these lonely

hours are but reflection upon His Art

as it grows within each, to bless thereof!

  2. Dear David, howdy ace poet. I’ve been tightening up some old poems and came across your sonnet ‘God’s Bitter Angel’ to my ‘Weary on a mind quest’ and let you know once again how much I love your sonnet. Divine, indeed. And much, much more. Your feedback, in my mind, is a gift from God channeled to your receptive mind and soul to gift others in your sphere. I miss our times together online. I hope all is well with you and your family; that you’re still producing the art of poetry of the highest caliber. Please come visit Poetmeister sometime and let me know how/what you’re doing these days! Peace and Love, janetleigh
