Your Dying Spouse 633 - Twilight

Night may fall, and it may be very dark indeed, but another dawn is coming.

This is the Gotterdammerung,
the day of evil will
on which there's no escaping from
the place where sun stands still.
Life itself is in the balance
on which the devil puts his thumb
and smiles unto the hellish cadence
that makes the brave go numb.
Prayer is what is needed now
but dies on drying tongue,
leaving but the question: how
to dodge as spears are flung.
First the twilight, then the night,
and then the dawn, the pure Son-light.

Music from John Denver, with leaving On A Jet Plane.

Thanks to Carol Ashby, Blessed Are The Pure Of Heart is back on Kindle, and will be available in paperback soon.

Friends are everything. I couldn't have done it.

Marley, the canine waif from Afghanistan, whom WE helped save, has a Facebook page! Please drop by to see how happy he is today.

Below are my recent releases on Kindle -please excuse their presence in the body of the blog. I haven't the energy to get them up as 'buttons' in the sidebar. You can click on the covers to go to the Amazon links.
