Dionysius Hears Paul at the Areopag

Dionysius Hears Paul at the Areopagus

Areopagus, you speak and reason hears,

Manís passions from the underworld are cooled

By council, age to age, throughout the years,

And wit, by argument, astutely schooled.

Yet we, unsteady plebes of steadiness,

We carve the gods from every quarried thought

To rest assured our unassuredness

Of what is know, unknown, and what is taught.

Without us, not one myth or statue is,

Yet, in us lives the life and breath of all,

Of all thatís greater than what reason gives

Is God who raises life from manís first fall.

Saint Paul invited to Areopagus

The living, breathing, loving God in us.

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.
