Lucifer Sighs
Gary Edward Geraci said:

St. Lucifer of Cagliari was a defender of the deity of Christ and of St. Athanasius against the Arians.

Another bishop in the 300s—Lucifer of Siena—also bore this name. [Courtesy: Who (or What) Was Lucifer? by Jimmy Akin, October, 2015] Love the poem and the ensuing comments! Great discussion ...

I sense a common motif in several pieces of your work: the hypocrisy of the human vices (jealousy, envy, self-seeking - sons and daughters of the great one: pride); present and working their destructive mayhem. No-one can save themselves; only with God’s grace can a free person turn from such vice and begin to embark on a more ‘wholesome’ course; to freely empower the intellect and will; to freely form one’s conscience for the good of self and neighbor. These are your TRUE motives of credibility when it looks like everything around you is falling apart.

Little White Birds

The symbolism of the white birds and the overall personification of hope flowed well, remaining consistent throughout the poem. I definitely enjoyed reading through it, all I\'d say for criticism is perhaps a bit of expansion on the bride\'s troubles. But restating it at the beginning and end did help to achieve the same end.

thank you Christina for taking the time to read and your constructive comment. I shall have to work on clarifying my story so that one doesn\'t have to read the author notes to understand the metaphor.
thank you

Very well written! Great rhyme and cadence. I did not get your metaphor until I read your authors note. Very sad indeed!

Lucifer Sighs

many people would be surprised to learn that this poem has nothing to do with Satan in fact it is the polar opposite. Firstly it is the story of me and my children looking through a telescope in the early morning at the planet Venus, before an in-coming storm arrives.
If you were to look up the word Lucifer you would see its definition as _the planet Venus_ a more apt description for the Latin
word (Lucifer) would be (one who gets its light from the light giver) The planet venus aside from the sun and moon is the brightest light in the solar system. The light from our sun reflects strongly off its cloudy surface. Hence the definition... one(venus) who gets its light from the Light giver(the sun). so that is one meaning in this poem. Another theme is my relation ship with God. Believe it or not the word Lucifer is a description of Jesus not Satan (as so many have been falsely led to believe} Now bear with me here/
Jesus in scripture is referred to as the Morning Star which is also the name given to Venus as it the brightest light and mostly appears in the early morning sky. That is because Jesus is the One who receives light from the light Giver (God). If you are doubting this as truth I want you to consider this fact: The word Lucifer only appears one time in the bible that is in the old testament book of Isaiah. The story being told is of an Israeli king and his dreams of being as great as God. In this written history you will find the word Lucifer. which he is referred to as... Herein lies the crux--What is a Latin word doing in the Hebrew text? think about that- I would say that when this book was translated some monk decided to adjust the text as he saw fit to his interpretation of the story. Latin does not belong in the Hebrew old testament. That being said -ever since then people have become convinced that Lucifer means Satan when in fact the morning star is Jesus (Book of Revelations) and they say God works in mysterious ways (I don\'t believe that) I do however believe Satan works in mysterious ways hence the title-- Deceiver of men.. and lastly in this poem I put my final verse between the ( )\'s so if you read the ()\'s from top to bottom you can see that it is I who am disappointed with my relationship with God. Yes all is vanity...peace
