    Poem Commentary

    If you look closely you can see them

    No Water

    Bitter new wine in old worn-out wine skins
    Pouring forth tempting gales of sorrows
    For does not mankind love to wallow in despair
    Seeking reasons not to heal
    Battered about by distortions
    As though any of it is real
    Failed courage to unveil hidden life
    We turn aside
    Unmindful of God's silent cries
    As another light subsides
    In the river of darkness
    We drown where there is no water
    A lone foot on the shore
