Upheaval

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The second huge upheaval
May come after salvation
Mountaintops have been shared
But the Valley has come
Stinging at first
Rebuked like some wasp
Staying and staying
Though oft the supplications
Mocking and shoving
Demons truly are leering
And damn surely
No one understands
Can offer a scintilla
Of wise comfort.
Alone and scarcely breathing
Panic unimagined
Is the Lord not big enough?
Not able enough?
Not filled with enough Love?
You are in the whale’s belly
Deep down
Deathlike.
But some whisper
Suggests the shoreline
Happy hissing waves
Camaraderie of gulls
Heaven’s smile returned.
Death’s grinning clutches
Reversed and running.
Now a wind from somewhere
Kindly sets the sails
A-billowing.
