God Nods As They Move On


By Shawn R. Jones


When the wooden porch is pollen caked

from lemon dust of flowers

quaking as they bloom,

winter cries a sad good-bye

to insects snared

in looming webs of spring

and no one writes their eulogies

but  millions of doves sing

across a moon-filled dawn,

“Small lives do

God’s purpose too 

before the day is gone.”


Shawn R. Jones is the author
