A Tiny Whirlwind

191 photo 191_zps026f7f00.jpg
Each tiny poem begins with a phrase taken from the opening sentences of the Gospel According to Saint John (King James Version).

~~ 1 ~~
In the beginning,
they say, the planets’ spinning
made angels dizzy.
~~ 2 ~~
Sent to bear witness,
three beings from a spacecraft
endeavor to speak.
~~ 3 ~~
the will of the flesh—
a tangle of deception
net forever spread
~~ 4 ~~
full of grace and truth
both lunatic and loser
hanging out with Christ
~~ 5 ~~
A man sent from God
will tread wherever he must
to spread the good news.
