A VEIL LIFTED

A VEIL LIFTED

A VEIL LIFTED

Did you know?

Understand or

See this?

It came down upon us

Like the rain.

Darkness overthrown

The light

We now talk

Of golden days past.

Governments

Now all gone

Your America

My grandfathers

Of thee I sing

Weep

For the millions

Dead & buried

Beneath the new earth

Of a new age

Holy is the farmer

Holy is the lamb

The harvest

The flowers.

And holy art thou

Who shares & partakes,

Works for the souls

He loves, friends.

New cleared

Fields like Elysium

Made again

By men

Fathers sons

Mothers daughters

Warm in the winter

Wood by the fire

Grateful

For the deer

And rabbit

The rifle

And the knife

Gardens

Our labored

Shared

Amen.

To take the broken roads

And to travel, our soldiers

Take the old cars, trucks

To the fallen & empty

Cities of another time

The stories of

Electricity &

The bright

Glowing lights

And the magic of it all,

What is now gone,

Or what was

Long ago

Before the storm

The remaining old

Tell the stories,

Talk of movies & games,

The famous & the beautiful

Icons worshiped … loved

Another day

That the sun has shown out

Another day that

Our garden grows.

In peace

The veil

Has been lifted

And all the angels

Cease to be

No airplanes

In the sky,

And no steel shelters

The tribes

Spread out

Over miles

Our hope

Our pride

Our strength

A land … place where

All the children

Play again

Love again

Live

Off the shores

Of old Amerika

I write this poem

For thee

A fisherman

A hunter

With wife & child

Faith and pistols

For each

Awaiting another

Time, another place

A new golden age

Of truth

And philosophy,

Art and science

In prayer

The scavengers

And the killers

Long gone

A veil lifted

Humanity begins,

Starts over once more

To try to get

All right
