From Heaven Falls Tears

From Heaven falls tears

Washing man’s filth from this earth.

Is that not called love?

Could any Father do more

To heal wounds of his children?


He weeps for our souls,

Our loss of humanity

Once gifted to us,

Dismissed in lieu of greed

Yet denied by the greedy.


Is this not our way,

To walk through life in blindness

Avoiding our flaws?

Then in our reckoning hour

We beg for His forgiveness.


How foolish we are

Destroying so many lives

All for bits of gold.

In the end what did this buy,

But a road leading to Hell.

Of Love and Character – Haiku

Blue Moon –

By D. R. DiFrancesco

The blue moon’s warmth

Draws out man’s primal urges

Seeding lust and love.


Love’s tempest…flowers

Brilliantly in early spring

Pollinating zeal.


Love, tender and sweet

Caresses my troubled heart

Putting me at ease.


Do not condemn me

For flaws in my character

I am imperfect.
