Some Poems for Vocation

For Vocation

1. Tongue of fire lights a candle for me

In the presence of your habit

Shadows of the past hide in

the sun of your radiance, rays twinkling


raindrops. I seek nothing but

heaven, I seek no one but God

You are an eternal candle in

front of the Cross.


/for Ted.


2. Tongue of Sword

All listen to the argument of

Adam in your sacred mouth

Prophecies in your tongue of

sword cut the heathen

The flame in your scepter cures

the lepers, heals the blind. I

seek waiting for you, waiting

till you sit with me.


/For Arvin.
