    Spire


    Since Babylon

    stone on stone

    aspires to impress,

    to bring heaven

    in reach of earth

    or pierce the sky

    spear by spear

    rising on tails of fire

    as bells sing rejoicing

    in fervent clangour

    the gods are dead

    tentered and bled of ichor

    only man to fear in anger.

    As of old, we are still making ourselves (or pretending such) to become the gods so many seek to replace. Different faces - same outcome it seems. Beautiful versing Johntee .

      This came from late afternoon sun
      lighting a church stone spire
      observed while halted in traffic,
      but that's not how it wrote itself
      with the spears drawing to mind
      Kim Jong Un's launch of a phalanx
      of missiles to threaten the USA and when
      finished could have been titled "My desk's got a bigger button."
