Two towers fell today ten years ago
Two lives torn apart and ten million more
Two parties came together and cried out to One God
Dual towers downed ending duality on our sod

But oh what ephemeral unity
Was born of death that day
That Tower fell so swiftly
So silently gave way

To ambivalence and bickering
To answers we could not find
To forgetfulness of heroes
To the novocaine of time

The best of human nature
Could not stand the test
But sadly deferred
Humbly bowed
And laid itself to rest.


-E.A.A. "Hindsfeet" 9/11/10

"Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity...For there the LORD commands the blessing"


  1. I read this several times so it would really sink in. You have such a powerful way with words and I couldn't agree more. The sinful human nature... we would truly be nothing without God's grace and that is a lesson we should never forget. Thank you for providing the pondering this morning of remembrance.

  2. Thank goodness, God is the healer of all things if we just let Him......


  3. you are an amazing poet.
