Phillip Coffey - Scowls
Scowls - By Phillip Coffey
Here on the 'Blues Planet' listening to the instrumentalist picking
Through my evening-long shadows melting into the darkness.
Night stalkers looking for prey - owls, feral cats, foxes and coyotes.
They are staying well-hidden in the darkening grey until suddenly pouncing.
While I sat, hopefully safe from all the violence, grief and dependency
Trappings held by others - seeking comfort from their perceived reality.
Fallen timber, cut to a specific measurement to build a shelter for me
From whomever may unlawfully strive to be an unwelcomed intruder.
Oh, the comfort I feel that so many of my species have in their existence
Never known-they are living in a biblical Nod-wandering, no place called home.
Please Heavenly Father with your Son and Holy Spirit help us find peace
No more hate, many tearfully pleading - remove the beastly that daily scowls among us.
