apocalypse poem #11–signs of the times

there are hints–
things to watch for
listed in scripture

war
& whispers of it,
temples to build

you can read them
in old & new testaments

but I say
decipher the earth
& cast sticks like runes

listen to the eyes
of soldiers

& read what is written
in stone

what you want to know
is told there loudly

the when does not matter
as much

because

we are always moving
closer to it

& we have less time
than we knew

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
