Somber Tones

Staple diets tainted gray still pesticides they spray gallops horse of dapple grey fourth beast say, ”hell’s to pay” as life bubbles into shape for human illusion’s sake two thousand twelve’s wake Love in life is not a fake Somber tones may meander worldly concepts detest a new face many old faces doth not erase Love’s face, by perdition’s race

    Hi John, you write words that warn but so few listen. All around are the signs of what is coming and people blindly carry on as though nothing will happen. Surprise. So many on Soup do know though which is wonderful.

    I wish everyone could see life through your eyes, John. Looking at the world through loving eyes would eliminate many of the problems we encounter today. I am not afraid of 2012 prophecies. If we lead lives like our Creator intended, there is no cause for fear. Thank you for your comment. You are very dear to me as well. My illness is progressing. I need to call you soon. I'll be back in the Panhandle next week to take a friend to surgery and offer some care afterward. Love, Carolyn
