Homely Revelation

(Psalm 19:2)

x

Maybe

It will start

On what we’d call

A clear, calm day

In fact, cerulean

x

The armies might be

Lined up, anyway

In the desert

x

On all borders

x

A day for maintenance,

Patrols

With no shots fired,

Nothing pointed launching

x

Mary out of blue

(cerulean)

Shedding all colors

For us

Might come first

With John and Michael,

All directing

That the fighters clear their vehicles

While things are peaceful,

Rather easy

Before a miracle

Of rust shall have the

Armor and the gears,

The nuclei of fuel

Returned to earth

x

Before a rain shall fall

That satisfies the thirsty

While frustrating

All the radar,

All the targeting procedures

x

Like the cartoon

In which the prey

Like a magician

Causes flowers to appear

Inside the muzzle

Of the hunter’s gun,

Children shall be

Fed and entertained while

Parousia take

The unexpected

And frustrating

Lack of determined war,

The crazy metaphors

Made real

That taught us for an age

To give us

Love and time

x

Frightening things

Might happen:

God’s arrival in

Healed flesh and sprit,

The judgment of the wicked,

Victory in nothing gained

But love’s perfection

x

Awful as in awesome,

These should be

Enough;

The day shall satisfy

As water and air cover

And fulfill

The valley before

Baucis and Philemon

And perfectly

The entire Earth

Of us
