Friday Thoughts

Friday Thoughts

By BR Chitwood

*

Quietness absorbs me,

Creating a solemnity of hope,

The mountain South outside my window

Shows off its bronze splendor,

Canopied with a powder-blue sky –

A bronze giant monolith

Of jutting rock and desert growth…

Upon all this I numbly listen

To the silence of God’s beauty,

Pondering the nature of

Good and Evil,

The uneven, diverse voices

Of Earth’s old and young,

Forming their calculations and causes

For prevailing issues

That change, grow, and cumulate.

What and where is the elixir

That can remedy the network

Of thoughts’ cross currents?

Must we grow a civilization of

Smiling Robots who always respond

To a magical quiescent push

Of an electronic button?

Peace? War? What happens next?

So much to ponder as I

Stare at the beauty of the

Mountain and clear blue sky,

All glowing in the desert Sun.
