“Opus Viridis” ©2013 Matthew Paul Buccheri
Shades of verdant Crayola in a lengthy season
Prompt us like the hands of a Grandfather
Where will the sun rise this week?
Torches atop the draped marble, east-facing
Curlicues of gold thread weave about
Like a circulatory system, only more handsome to the eye
Yes! Sanctus Paulus patiently we awaited you:
How now to live after being raised and deified?
He reminds us: continue the trek over the steep hilly summer meadow
