Heart of the World

Like the waterfalls of Guiana

and the sweeping arc

of the great Mississippi,

the rhythm beats against

our blue lined skin

reminding us of a source

broader than the far horizon

yet alive in our bloodstream

like a pulse at the heart of the world.

  10. On Eagle Wings

    On eagle wings angels fly,
    Who walk upon waters and soar crystal skies.
    There it is, once again we gather to meet,
    Amidst the roaring thunder of a warrior’s feat.

    Souls of children from the east will rise,
    A chorus of angels, to a savior’s cry;
    “Awake Nations, Awake! Arise!”
    Dawn is come, a new Sunrise…..
