Montgomery

 

I sat on the capitol steps today
in sweltering Alabama heat,
like sheep we gathered
to mourn an empty rotunda
and cheer for God even though
He has again been heckled by the world.

Passion peaked beneath the mid-day sun,
we fought with applause and amens.
Leaders and laymen launched
their voices, the media transmitted
each syllable and sound.

God's church stood its ground
on this August day in spite
of the thieves who stole His words
from our sight,
they are forever in our hearts
never to be taken by mere men.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
