I Wonder

I Wonder

written by: Cindy Georgakas

 

I wonder….

Church pews,
Stained glass,
Shattered memories
past.
Paying our respect
to a life lived fast,
In a church he……
never stepped into.

I wonder….

Praying for forgiveness.
Drinking from the tinged chalice,
sins forgiven,
to repeat again.
Singing Amazing Grace.
I kneel at the altar,
glass cuts,
blood drips.
Sins of my father forgiven.
I scratch my head.

I wonder….

Am I the only one that feels this schism?

Work hard,
till the soil, 
break bread, 
love your family,
do it again.
Flowers bloom,
return to the earth,
time captured.
in a bottle.
Hearts flutter,
altar boys stutter.

I wonder….

Who was this man of the cloth who loved his garden?
Flowers wilt,
the music stops.
we break bread,
raise our glasses,
on the equinox,
where the sun melds
orange, brown hues
to fiery skies.

I wonder….
