A Bold Declaration

      A Bold Declaration

They read aloud and then debate
Old prophecies, affairs of state,
And strange events as if a sign
On earth of heaven-sent design.

Of Kingdom, savior, future date
The speculators prone to wait
Make time to sit, talk, and define
What's everlasting and divine.

But one who makes a bold, brash choice,
And speaks a firm, intrepid voice,
Says now each person is an heir,
Inheritor of Godly fare.

Above, below like firm set joists,
In spirit sing, rejoice, rejoice,
To live the Kingdom if you dare
First see with eyes already there.

Rich Tassinari
Luke 4:16-21

About the Poet
Husband, father, grandfather, and each title is my joy. As a youth, poetry was a means to express the inexpressable. I was attracted to (and still am) the beauty and brevity of verse. All flows out from God, and like a proper prayer, can flow back.
