by Tim Chiu
A unique and horrible stretch - a timely point of view - a poem.
|A disturbing fracture, a major wound -
The base is seeking a preeminent tide
Due to warring;
The healing begets a moral dignity
Of the human display -
A challenge becomes an ignominy,
But simply rules the layman’s craft;
And the success flies
On the cusp of tragic innocence
The guise of ruin shall condone
Days and evenings light
A blessed, significant candle.
The illumination of waters
Takes a misguided turn
Toward a legal leniency.
The servile humor must enlighten
And education of those timeless shifts
Taps knowingly into a decency and relevance…
As the Lord considers with power and mercy
The appropriate consolations,
A hearty and cherished outcome for romance,
And a loyalty
Begetting significant truths.
