All that love can do

The majesty of dogs impresses us –

Their solitary solidarity –

Yet above their grey horizons

There is always the promise, lingering…

Of continuing. These days an ending is assumed

That glorifies the story of our lives:

Making children, seeing things, listening,

To the lies of our hearts’ desires.

Yesterday the sky darkened at noon

Seas spewed forth strange shapes

Clouds of misery engulfed us

All we knew, we soon forgot.

Now a pulse of re-creation

Lends itself to me,

And to you, and you, with all that good can do,

For this our lonely human heart.

Some say acts of kindness and of love

Become rarer by the day

I say the keys of heaven are purchased by human blood

Buried deep in mire.

But God will lend us time, it's true,

For all that love can do

For me, for us, for her, for you.
