FORETHOUGHTS

 

Il pense,
   qui est.

    Il rit,
       qui sera.

 

Anno Domini

May the Father
grant everlasting
Glory to His Son
in His day
to come.

 

All that I am
is but the merry
laugh of a child
skipping a stone
in the stream
fed by the eternal spring
that passes swiftly
on its course to
meet the grand open sea.
