The Cathedral Builders
by John Ormond

They climbed on sketchy ladders towards God,
with winch and pulley hoisted hewn rock into heaven,
inhabited the sky with hammers,
defied gravity,
deified stone,
took up God's house to meet him,
and came down to their suppers
and small beer,
every night slept, lay with their smelly wives,
quarrelled and cuffed the children,

Germanic Gods ( Acrostic Poem}
by Mya Hamilton

Gloriously fighting for all they hold dear.

Envy and jealousy lie in the hearts of all fools.

Revenge can be good or bad. It can give you pain or pleasure.

Maliciousness is not a sign of bravery in their eyes but rather a sign of weakness and folly.

Ambition slithers through the hearts of brave men like snakes Slither through the Earth.

God’s Masterpiece
by Christen Kuikoua

In the morn of days, when time was but young,
God’s gentle hands beheld, creation sung,
With heavenly art, each soul did He mould,
A masterpiece distinct, with roles untold.

For God, a Maker, more than mere mechanic,
Within each heart His love, panoramic,
With tender touch, He shapes every part,
Crafting beauty with a skilled, adoring heart.

Oppressive Religion
by Frangipani Retrograde

Don't talk over them,
Don't expect them to care,
Don't be surprised if they laugh at me
Don't expect them to listen.

Expect them to be dismissive
Expect them to be defensive
Expect them to be self - righteous

(I've got to get out of this situation.)

Jezebel
by Jeff Bresee

Dim lit, damp and distant corner
torn from dream of vapor’s fold.
Slow descent to worlds divided,
nothing hot and nothing cold.

Long ago this soul forgotten,
cast off in the ides of youth.
Un-forgiven deeds left hiding
beneath the stone of burden’s proof

Infinite worlds - Alexis karpouzos
by alexis karpouzos

In the cosmic dance of swirling lights,
Where stars are born and darkness fights,
The universe whispers secrets old,
In silver threads and dust of gold.

Galaxies twirl in elegant grace,
Each a part of the endless space,
Planets orbit in silent tunes,
Around their suns, like drifting balloons.

AT THE END OF TIME - ALEXIS KARPOUZOS
by alexis karpouzos

I know that our efforts all come to nothing. Analyze life, tear its trappings off, lay it bare with thought, with logic, with philosophy, and its emptiness is revealed as a bottomless pit; its nothingness frankly confesses to nothingness, and Despair comes to perch in the soulI know the end of us all is nothing, I know that at the end of Time, the reward of our toil will be nothing — and again nothing. I know that all our handiwork and all our ideas will be destroyed. I know that not even ash will be left from the fires that consume us. I know that our ideals, even those we achieve, will vanish in the eternal darkness of oblivion and final non-being. There is no hope, none, in my heart. I know, No promise, none, can I make to myself and to others. No recompense can I expect for my labors. No fruit will be born of my thoughts. I know the time — eternal seducer of all men, eternal cause of all effects — offers me nothing but the blank prospect of annihilation. So, my dignity is broken and weak, in recognition of my impending defeat.

The man who is alone, who stands on his own feet, who is stripped bare, who asks for nothing and wants nothing, who has reached the apex of disinterested­ness not through blind renunciation but through ex­cess of clear vision, turns to the world which stretches out before him as a burned prairie, as a devastated city — a world in which no churches, asylums, refuges, ideals, are left — and says: «Though you promise me nothing I am still with you, I am still an atom of your energies, my work is part of your work; I am your companion and your mirror as you march on your merciless way. But I owe nothing to any one. I would be responsible to freedom alone.

The Triumphant Entry By Chidi Anthony Opara
by Public Information Projects

The way was paved
With fickleness,
With uncontrolled emotions,
With frenzied hollers
Of "hosanna in the highest"
By motley loud mouths.

The motley loud mouths
Misconstrued
The mission of the messiah,

When I Was Small, I Grew

God held me in thrall:
Yes, He was my All
