January 1988


the sun rises this morning


as it always has before

a silent trumpets blast

proclaiming the majesty of God


yet a Christian

I flee this awesome sound



driving to T.O.

to see a friends son


and celebrate

the covenant of love


closing a door to God

not allowing Him

free reign

in the tender/callous shell

of me


I too

trumpet His praise

less faithfully than His sun

the faithfulness of His Son

allows me too

to shine as pure

and celebrate again

His covenant of love
