"The Barrel Angels"

Some carry swords
All praise the Lord
Warriors, messengers,
Ministers all

Others are tasked
With opening casks
And dipping out
Glorious new wine

They splash and toss
But not a drop is lost
Heart laughter and joy ensue
Holy rolling winebibbers

Joy unspeakable
Love receivable
Drunken stupor?
No, filled with light to shine

"On The Shelf"

Behind the books
And old photos
And baubles precious,
Knickknacks sentimental;
Behind the masks
Is hidden a heart
Layered in dust
Does it still beat?
Is there life?

The door opens
In comes a mighty rushing wind
(Or a sweet gentle breeze)
Books, masks tossed aside
Dust blown away
Shelf is clear

Lub-dub, lub-dub
Love did, Love did
