Its Peace is in its Place


 

Looking back into the vastness
where time began and will end
purple clouds and pink diffusion
signal the ascent
of a fiery orange explosion
Colored clouds collide
over the Sleeping Giant
Mine eyes have seen
the glory of the pink hue
along the Backbone
Coloring with that hue
the other Sleeping Giant, too
 
I stand outside
 the cemetery in its darkness
unthreatening, unthreatened
I feel peace in this place
yet there are so many
who went so young
during those impossible
homesteading days
Tho’ so many have wept
where these
all those years have slept
 Its Peace
Comes from its Place
Amen

I too feel peace in cemeteries. Like John said, "Top Drawer"
Reviewed by John Flanagan
Duke,
this is top drawer, writing of a fine order
with tenderness but no silliness, with love
but not sloppily sentimental
and with true compassion

Reviewed by Sage Sweetwater
Horizon's confluency where birth and death meet where the veil thins between the living and the dead. Feast and famine of another century those working the land for improvement laid to rest for their toil in a generation of hardship, war and poverty that took their toll. Personal historical poetry, Duke...a gift to the descendants of those families of yesteryear, and a spiritual godly slant within the line "Mine eyes have seen the glory" and the title...good thoughtful work.

Love & Spiritual Kinship,
Sage
Reviewed by Ronald Hull
There's something different about the big sky country and its cemeteries then the little family cemetery by the river in Wisconsin. Both are reverent places. Some show more hardship than others, but all of them bear witness to death.

You paint a peaceful Western scene as vivid as a painting.
