Sky Cross

(C) 2014 by Howard Dart Humeston


Driving north on the interstate I see the sun behind a church

It’s tall cross embedded in the light

Or, is the light of the cross Illuminating the sky?

A symbol so misinterpreted

 So maligned

So hijacked

It’s true meaning total acceptance

Total love

Total peace.

Arms outstretched in total surrender

Total sacrifice

So misunderstood by so many.
