Broken Mirrors (+1)

It’s easy to criticize…

harder to know


The poison unleashing,

reflections aglow


Assumption to breed

where temerity hides


The lie in sheep’s clothing

—truth buried inside


(Dreamsleep: January, 2021)




Rebirth & Reclamation


You don’t have to abandon previous beliefs  

to embrace what presents to you now


As windows long open whose portals of light 

wrap around each new vision—enshroud


Those messages ancient and all messages new 

interlock like the fingers of God


The truth by dimension delivering you whole    

—new lightning reclaiming the rod


(Villanova University: January, 2021)
