The Eclectic Pen - To the Auspices of Tomorrow...

  Lord grant, that we,
purveyors of the day,
may one day wake,
unconscious of our weapons;
lacking even the vocabulary
to describe that which we hate,
or even the shapes of our discomforts...

Instead, possessed by light,
our souls laid bare...
we shall pick up our discourse
and argue over the proper
shade of sunset, or sunrise
painting the august horizon
and part in friendly disagreement...

Both right, neither wrong,
and richer for the simple converse,
bless us to see such gentle auspices
in our time... this oh Lord,
I do pray.
