God’s Crystal Ball

On Amazon-Kindle


On the verge of giving life, another’s woman, lover, wife?

Then I saw as crystal ball what lies ahead when we must fall,

To pages in the diary turned, a wasted life? What have I spurned?

I may be offered second dance, another mortal game of chance,

The answer sleeps within her womb,

This child like me will meet its doom,


Long after I have passed this way,

The unborn child will walk this way,

Till on its downfall I awake,

To blow one candle on my cake.

But not for me this time, nor day;

For I must soon be on my way.


Soon I sleep in heaven’s womb,

Feel free to call it grave or tomb,

My time is other time and place,

To once again redeem disgrace,

I’ll rest awhile then I will be,

In future womb of mum-to-be.

Her bloom is but God’s crystal ball,

That tells the tale from birth to fall

From infant’s caul to widow’s shawl,

In birth’s sweet shroud I’ll be.


Caul: A womb-child’s shroud.
