Men of Faith, raptured
        in Capes: Blind,
pray for the Hand of Intervention.

Men of Wrath, ruptured
        in Mission: Blood,
abrade Fate by Armed Intercession

A simple rain washed
        both from memory,
Clean, like Ghosts on a Ragged Hill,

Or, like a Candle Image cast
        in a Church lit dimly,
I see the One who is there, now, and still

  1. Ghosts on a Ragged Hill..what a powerful image and line..maybe men of wrath and men of faith cross over in their sense of mission..thought provoking prose

Have some fun...
