In the Fullness of Time

In the
Days of
Innocence
And joy;
We clung
To our
Tender,
img_0506_400Sacred
Ways.

Now,
In dusty
Doorways
In musty
Hallways.

We
Swim in
Chaos,
And strife;
In Derision
And distrust.

Was it
Like
This in
Those
Golden
Years?

In
Those
Hallowed
Olden
Years?

In their
Sacred
Ancient
Ways?

Where
The small
Tribal band
Would
Cluster
Around the
Fire;the old
Warming the
Hands of the
Young.

As
Wisps of
Smoke
Would
Rise
From the
Crackling,
Cooking
Aromatic
Flames;
The flames
Licking
The tender
Juicy meat;
The aromas
Of oregano
And thyme
Wafting,and
Filling the skies,
Amongst the
Oak and
Pine trees.

While the small
Tribal band of
Young and old
Would sing
With joy
Around the
Dancing,
Flickering
Flames.

In the
Years of
Innocence
And love.

We have
Conquered
The moon,
But have
We conquered
Our hearts?

Lost
Our kinder
Gentler side?

Oh, how
I yearn for
A return to
Those kinder
Gentler years;
For the
Community
Of man.

Yet, in
The fullness
Of time,the
Circle turns;
And there shall
Be redress.

The
Community
Of man.

For the
Spirit
Never
Dies,
But returns
To replenish
Anew.

In the
Fullness
Of time.
