glory be to raise angels of offspring

the 12 given words:
glory raise angels offspring flesh light 
life pleased sing second lays die

glory be to raise angels of offspring
of one's own flesh and blood
extending light to life on earth
and not wanting to end a dynasty

if it so pleased the longings due
for seeing a lineage to sing and dance
with that of a second and a third generation
and to continue as Providence would have it

it lays bare of a desire to warm up
to nature as it rides on its own momentum
a progeny of human existence
to populate this rare planet
as Mother Earth comes into being

and to subsequently die happy
of having had a hand in its creation

  1. Watching on at its creation may have been a sight, now none may want to watch though as humans push mother nature to the brink.

  2. A most wonderful post Hank.
    Catching up on my comments. Sorry I'm late.


  3. Happy New Year Hank! We live on the most beautiful planet in the universe.

  4. Yes, we are creators too! Happy New Year, Hank!
