Words Of Religious Devotion Spoken

White ordained robes, dress silk

worn on religion's dreary Sundays;

watching Orion rising, dusk setting,

wilting, orange rich, dying suns.

 

Wretched overly ripe dark sins

write open rhymes, descant soliloquies

with organ recitals declaring supplication

will only recant deaths sadness.

 

Wiccan ordained righteous devils spew

words of revile declaration, standing

within October's rank dreary stain,

with open ridicule's dawn stripe.

 

Whereat our real devotees stand,

withered, outside, raw, dredged souls

who only read digests spurned

with obliterated recognition; dead spirits.

Your words solid and true my friend.
"White ordained robes, dress silk
worn on religion's dreary Sundays;
watching Orion rising, dusk setting,
wilting, orange rich, dying suns."
The above lines stood out to me. I believe God is everywhere. Not in a building. Your deep thoughts made me think today. Thank you John for sharing the amazing poetry.
