‘May Breezing into June . . . ‘
The nights fast are casting a daytime heat like the spring-time days being left behind, and the forecast days with sweltering beat move in as the approaching corner-wind breezes us around from May into June. The world sizzles with ill-will and tension of the pandemic, racist words, the clutch of its bowels, and regurgitates much as musings of impending peril loom. Politics and religion do not mix, and world-wide pain may not leave any room for giving "home-need" the generous fix being planned and debated turn-by-turn, eliminating clauses--pages burn. Can edges of words be softened a bit? Can words of care be increased just a whit? Can the world respect each living "on" it. Rumors of wars and murders in the news abide in half of that printed to ruse. Pacts and treaties with the courtroom tableau side-by-side--striving to be "in the know." Reporters writing words of a new shade describing a world with a dull old blade being brandished about as "sharp and new;" but "shiny" is not what comes into view. History is known to repeat itself because it ne'er sees its past on the shelf. Words, looking back to one century ago, describe kindred winds blowing 'neath the bough. Ne'er, in this hundred years, would we dare dream of a rerun betide, but it doth seem self-same ugliness abounds--eyes agleam. It seems most have left the premise of faith-- trust, hope, and love at the center of it. Some rounded its edges with human lathe, clearing Creation away from the midst as Creator sits alone up on high, blinking back tears from the edge of His eye. If we want to be filled with peace and joy it may be time to renew an old ploy. Man is not resolving old doubts this time-- just as hopes launched on that long ago road were mere mortal attempts at latitude hold. Most hold the belief of eternal freedom marching to the beat of a distant drum. Man thinks he knows best how to deal with pain, the best way to yield both profit and gain-- I ask for faith, hope, and love to sustain.
