Meaning (in Beauty)

Photo by TGH on

Mud is trampled

under fighting feet

angry shouts

and dying love

where is hope

where is God

in these battles

against divine peace

looking around

all around the killing fields

there are flower gardens


listening for the whispers

under the running babble of troubled voices

there are birds of harmony


and these prompt other questions

does the truth of beauty still in the world

despite the best efforts of human experts

offer evidence

for the grace of God

does sound of nature singing

despite the racket of a band of tyrants rehearsing

offer clues

that we were created for a different life

than a hopeless

and violent prison

of sin
