what meaning sought…?

    Life lines on palms, star signs in skies,
    random tea-leaf patterns in china cup,
    false old-wife fables, patent such lies;
    wine turned vinegar we so readily sup.

    what damage these delusions have done,
    – meaning sought in mythic tales?
    scratch-cracked mirrors, moons not sun:
    unevenly weighted Libra’s scales.

    who holds our future, where is the key?
    all hunger for meaning, true hope;
    there has to be more than “let it be”
    more needed than astral telescope.

    eagerly scanned, life’s faint horizon,
    – does any map mark best taken road?
    what compass to focus our eyes on,
    who helps to carry our lonely load?

    I turn to maker, kind star-fields lord,
    this wandering lost lamb blessed,
    angels protect, double-edged sword;
    God’s signet seal, pinion pressed.
