ONE HUMANITY

A
Godly Sun
Stepped soundlessly
Upon an eastern tide
In mantled tendrils
Risen from serene repose
Bemusing warmth in
Waning summer's
Cloudless dawning sky

A
Godly Sun
Thence met befraught
Entreating lamp of gold
Held stalwartly upon
The shores of Lady Liberty
Lest Freedom's reign be clouded
By an ashen flood of steel
Upon a dark eleventh mourn

A
Godly Sun
Yet shone on high
Above duplistic billow's dark
Defilement of Freedom's day
Mere underworld intent
To undermine our sanctity
and thwart the provident
Ascension of a Worldly Peace

A
Godly Sun
With opened hands
In healing prayer forsooth
Enjoined a Great Divide
O'er skies American United
In our Freedom's song
To harmonize Amazing Grace
Upon the mourning sky

A
Godly Sun
Spread rays of love
To every continent
With shining fingers far outstretched
To touch each saddened heart with light
And lift the shadows of mistrust
Embracing all on earth as one
Enlightened by a darkened day

A
Godly Sun
Holds mankind's fate
Enclenched within in its palm
American Stripes proudly wave
In worldwide gratitude
And dedicate as kindred stars
Now Heaven's Angels holding high
Their beacons at each shore

For One Humanity
God Bless Us One And All

(tears fall down my cheeks) God Bless You, sweet friend, I knew you were going to post something so very special to honor those who believe in freedom and you did, BRAVO!!! (wipes tears) May heavens angels guide all those lost and those hurt by the losses of last year, sweet friend, God Bless You, you are a true angel of words, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Nan, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

So well written Ms. Nan but oh the buckets of tears this brought forth.

I am a mess and it's only Monday. You don't even want to know what I'll be like on Wed.

So looking forward to tomorrow, heat and all!  Hugs, Marti
