Peacable kingdom

On the Twilight Mountains

                                    (Jeremiah 13:16)

On the twilight mountains
leopards change their spots
distributing their cast-off coats
to helpworthy have-nots

lions and lambs and lynx lie down
and tell each other tales
of how at sea the seals now go
for walks with killer whales

lovers linger hand in hand
promising to be
truthful, faithful, thoughtful, kind,
supportive company

and peace seems deep and peace seems long
until the morning sun
wakes us from our ancient dream
like a starter gun.
