Justice and Mercy

Walking the Streets
A devil pointed out some sin
That happened long ago.
I knew that justice ought to win.
A devil pointed out some sin,
But mercy found a back way in
So gratitude could grow.
A devil pointed out some sin
That happened long ago.

Vine and Palm Tree

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

  1. That tree is amazing–cool photo, Frank. I like your triolet and when I wrote mine years ago when Samuel did the prompt, I think I didn’t do the meter thing either. It confuses me! But I think in yours, mercy and gratitude win over the devil always.
