TuesdayEve (Dominique Galiano) with:
God Bless the Universe

Blessings are needed everywhere during these
turbulent times on Earth,
world leaders on the edge of madness,
guns on coat racks, glacial meltdowns,
deforestation, racial violence,
humanity losing its humanity.

Turn to God, face inward,
actualize peace and goodwill in the universe,
manifest tolerance, inner truth guided toward
peace of mind and men.

The spirit of kindness lends a helping hand,
an old man lies fallen by the curb,
a neighbors’ mail strewn along the walk,
repairs to a battered sign in the church yard
invoke blessings on the world and embrace
All That Is.

  1. I love the feeling of inclusiveness and unconditional love that comes through the words of this poem. If ever the world needed a message like this, it’s right now.

    1. Thank You Jennifer, for reading and taking the time to comment. You’re right, these days we need to help rather than hinder one another; and I’m very happy the words translated into those feelings for you which was the intention, thank again,
      Dominique
