*"Glory Be"*

Glory come lately
Glory be latent
And I for this purpose sent
Flirtatious day in the sun,
Full moon rising.
Assuage distraction and
Prodigal prizing.
Hidden attar,
Simplicity not despising.

Glory come lately
Glory be ardent
And I for this purpose sent
More showman,
More shaman,
More human yet:
To understand glory meant
Glory can
Glory be without regret.

Artist's Description

This is a poem from my recently published book,
“God Loves A Riddle: A Small Collection of Poems.”

All confusing and affirming.
These poems were written during the most base need survival years in
Boulder, Colorado; while facing 20 year old PTSD flashbacks of the murder of my infant son never before surfaced.
It seems I was piecing my fragmented life together almost as quickly as the puzzle pieces were being thrown at me! Frightenly abstract.
