Lady’s Favor
by Michael R. Burch

her riotous petals
into the air,
ignoring the lethal
and may
cry gleeful-
ly Hooray!
as the abundance
till a sudden June
leave us out of tune,
when the last rose is left
inconsolably bereft,
rudely shorn
of every device but her thorn.

Hello? Are you there today?
Have I scared you away?
Spent my whole teenage life, 
Preparing for this day of strife 
To say my goodbye's
To your love-me-not lies
Oh well, oh well
I'm not saying farewell
Where do you dwell?

Near somber guards, units of children heap 
dead leaves, naive to any else fallen.

Firefighters bow heads in silent paean, 
while polished trucks stand...

Of extraordinary import to us all,
That the Catholic Pope, with a new encyclical letter,
Announced to the world his conviction that there is no Hell

Light On the Devil's Chord - Day 28
Quietly, the memory of my grandfather manifested itself,
In the colors and shimmers of the Holy Spirit, 
I saw his human face,
The familiar lines, the flesh,
The pair of oceanic eyes, slowly blinking 
Like a heavenly beam

I wish for your voice once more.

I   write this letter to tell that;

Sometimes the sun does shine,

But things will never be the same.

Hoping  that  one day...
