Crack Down My Spine

2018 E.R. Smith

Crack down my spine

Rebuild, redesign, replenish

Universe renew the sinew

Refabricate all connection align

Blood of God pour, nourish

Ancestors witness venue

Show the rocky path divine

Shine the edges, fear banish

For the faithful a world anew


The Infinite Power of Faith

So many  people of all communities were at St. Patrick’s Cathedral Sunday, January 1, 2017.  Giving testimony to a higher powers call to all who would hear.  I bumped into and squished my body past so many on Fifth Avenue; all smiling.  Attitudes left at home; cell cameras focused at an iconic structure built for the catholic faith.  A man stepped forward toward me with his family in tow and asked if I wanted him to get a shot of my family with me in it?  I blinked, smiled, and handed him my camera.  My niece in from Maryland was sure the gentleman would run away with it; I smiled at her thinking, “Not here.”  We are all here for the same reason.  Only blocks away from Trump Tower.  Faith is so wonderful, its powers are infinite.
