Sunday Sonnet!

Spent leaf (WP)

🦋

Impassioned pleas for mercy go unheard
When stifled by insane pursuit of greed,
Compassion languishes in tomb interred
As though from thence never to be retrieved;
Enfeebled sterile voices fail to stir
Bowels of human kindness to respond,
Vain cowardice shamefacedly demur,
By compromise their dignity long conned;
Faint, haltered hope, like gentle morning breeze
Imbues new dawning day with waking life,
Deflated spirit kindles to increase
Determination to o’ercome the strife;
As fleeting be our precious time unfurled,
As transient are the values of the world.

Sunday Sonnet!

(WP)

🎀

I ask not for the wherewithal to be
Within the transient corridors of gain,
Where greed corrodes all human dignity,
The soul of whom it ever can retain;
Denuded of his precious self-respect,
The captive to vain avarice succumbs,
His passage to perdition slides unchecked,
His epitaph nonentity becomes;
Much rather self-destructive quests forsake,
The more enduring values to preserve;
Do not the route to excess undertake,
And balance of the greater good unnerve!
Sufficiency sustains diurnal need,
A building block in every wholesome creed!

In Praise Of…..

Conceived in love of Liberty,
Unbridled Passion birthed;
Disturbed by scenes of Poverty,
Raw anger was unearthed –
Suppression be accursed!

When human dignity bleeds dry
And Bias does his worst,
Equality will surely cry:
My patience is coerced –
Suppression be accursed!

In questing for the Common Good
Determination burst,
Adversity, boldly withstood,
Fraternity ranked first –
Suppression lay accursed!

Pristine Innocence!!

In dulcet harmony the cattle moaned,
Magnificat the Blessed Maid intoned,
Anon, in Manger, staid,
Her infant son she laid,
In designated Dignity enthroned!

With cattle at his side, the old man knelt,
Then he, the gentle touch of maiden felt,
He raised his cowled head,
Her smile his spirit fed,
The God Incarnate in this stable dwelt!

Whither?

Quo Vadis

Abandoned by a thoughtless world,
Inured to taunts of shame,
The rootless wander unfulfilled,
Their dignity aflame –
Human but in name!
