When I despair,
I remember that all through history
the ways of truth and love have always won.
There have been tyrants, and murderers,
and for a time they can seem invincible,
but in the end they always fall.

Think of it - always.

mahatma gandhi - early 20th century
 
Two Poems by Greg Hoover


An unending song


Apple blossoms,
fresh peaches,
snow-capped mountains,
butterfly wings,
the rings
embracing Saturn's glory...
All these,
yes,
and more
are thy robes,
and my voice
is your
unending song.
Praise be to you
who lives in me.
I am
your dwelling place,
like my fathers
before
me.
And the limitless
sky,
strange
red-orange
sunsets,
the
moons and stars
of an
expanding
universe...
all these
am I.
Your royal garments,
purple robes and sashes,
I give myself
to you.
Hold me tight
in exultation,
as I return
onto you,
like a grazing gazelle
onto a golden field,
a child's smile
onto a mother's eyes,
a note
into an
unending song.


Quiet expectation


Don't go inside...
Don't go anywhere.
Be bread
on the alter,
waiting
to be transformed.
Be grapes
on the vine,
waiting
to burst
into wine.
Be autumn
leaves,
as they drift
down.
Be hickory smoke
as it rises.
Be honey
dripping
from a farmer's
fingers...
Or the cool
rain
barrel,
where his wife
washes her hair.
Be the rain
itself,
as she kisses
your face,
washing you clean
of
you.
