sun behind clouds

Intent on his prey

the vulture’s eyes are focused

one claw bearing down

lips smacking with anticipation

carrion bird won’t fly

not until complete his destruction

sickened by the stench

I avert my eye

society is incarcerated

parrying with the devil

dancing in the streets

awaited by wickedness

to be finally consumed

its a choice for you and I

offer ourselves at futility’s altar

or escape death

finding our wings

on golden currents

that carry us home

 

“For I envied the arrogant when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. 

They have no struggles;  their bodies are healthy and strong. 

They are free from common human burdens; they are not plagued by human ills. 

Therefore pride is their necklace; they clothe themselves with violence.

 From their callous hearts comes iniquity; their evil imaginations have no limits. 

They scoff, and speak with malice; with arrogance they threaten oppression.

Their mouths lay claim to heaven, and their tongues take possession of the earth.”

Psalm 73: 3-9

“You guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And earth has nothing I desire besides you.”

Psalm 73:24 & 25

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
