A fineness of grace

A dewdrop of love

condenses upon

a cold heart…

A spring of hope

suddenly sprouts

in the desert of despair…

In a moment

a man decides

to die

so another

might live….

A father-husband

saves families

while his own

perishes….

A policeman

chooses death

so a terrorist

might live

and tell the tale….

The darkness

of inhumanity

is illuminated with

a fineness of grace

a deathless determination

a fearless compassion…

  1. Thanks…it’s good to be back….the wantonness of violence has shaken me badly….as it has so many of my compatriots….poetry is a streak of light on a grey day….
