Deeper Footsteps (+1)

The trail of my passing

 the joy and the tears


Each memory a milestone

 to mark every year


That road undiscovered

 lay before me ahead


With faith as my guidepost

 —deeper footsteps to tread


(Villanova Pennsylvania: September, 2018)



This Instant


Embracing the present

  freeing the past


Abandoning the future

  —eternity’s mask


Seizing the moment

  lies tumble and fall


Salvation perpetual

 —this instant and all


(Villanova Pennsylvania: June, 2016)
