A Whisper of Time

How briefly the candle burned
only a whisper
time fleetingly
revealed, praised
jeered, tortured
our savior
going, though willingly
at the master’s call
to the altar of the cross
with us only
for a whisper of time

after reading this poem:
A Brief Moment

Not really a season
a brief moment
a whisper of time only
Long enough for memory
but the taste still lingers
sweet upon our lips

written about facebook
exchange about the House of Purpose
coffeehouse stopping for a couple of months
(only July and August regular event),
not really a “season”
