Fire and floods
crime and love
tomatoes summer sweet
war and storms
buds are formed
as old man winter leaves

Covid fears
Sports and cheer
cerulean autumn skies
no relief
thoughts of spring
it’s beauty rhapsodized

Seasons from
earth’s pirouette
that change throughout the year
reckoned by
distant sun
and measured atmosphere

Steel and flesh
ice and death
we see the best and worst
acts of God
evil spawn
of man and planet earth

Lovely things
pain and loss
the smile of morning light
tends the world
how great it’s grand design

fragile life
in the fray
of hurricanes and hate
mercy then
let loving hearts pervade
