“Creation” by Bud Brand

The nature
of
the universe
is
magical
and
astounding,
with
energy
and
forcefulness
mysteriously
abounding.
Men
simply
cannot
comprehend
its
greatness
as
they plod,
and
so determine
that
it is
a masterpiece
of
God.

“Covid” by Bud Brand

i heard
the sadness
in
the wind
as it
went
whimp’ring
‘cross
the
sky,
the
melancholy
voice
of
covid
warning us
that
death
was
nigh.
