1 JOYOUS ENCOUNTER - 2 BROKEN EARTH

Written by: Robert Gresak

The sky was brushed by flame
and all of nature round about
seemed to joyously shout
the Divine ineffable name./

Orange, green and pulsating violet appeared
achingly wondrous - radiantly tiered.
It was as if the very soul
of the Absolute mightily reared./

A cosmic javelin of glorious light
through to the Earths very core speared./

.............................................................................................................................................

The Earth that is sundered and broken,
can it, will it be healed?
Evils dark shadow continues to fall fast
like sand in a glass.
The chill and energy sapping 
winds of malignancy blast
while men of moral stature
stand impotent and aghast,.

Yet 'tis man himself swayed 
by ceaseless greed
causes our mother Earth 
and his own selfhood to bleed.

We forget at our dire peril
that Earth is no mere shell
but a living breathing spirit
with the inner fires of creation lit./
