Destiny’s Inevitability 


and Jericho’s walls

plunged with malevolent



the dry beds of Jordan,

in spent hours he stormed

the Neolithic sands,

gripped to tribes and exodus,

revelations painted

the spiraling word,

evoked assurances

locked in dishonest antagonism,

the fallen sinner

buried his soul,


And the gnashing of teeth,


and tumultuous cries heard

from the eastern camp at

Gilgal only sent fear further

into the hearts of

those opposing Him,

whose memory resides in


unblemished and unchanging,

and the twelve stones,

the monument to a predestined


sit without striation,

freed from the entropy of time.


Are we lost

in the wilderness?


Seconds spinning serpents

between Horeb and Moab,

and the shepherd

shared his breath and gave

thee to the stagnant

emotions beyond their strength,

capacity recharged,

in exhortation to obedience.


The fallen state

preoccupied by an inability

to understand.


Divinity is sheep

and shepherd,

kin to the universe,

kin to kings…
